what is the girls' advisory panel?

The Girls' Advisory Panel (GAP) is an exciting opportunity for Guides aged 14 to 18 years to represent their peers and have their say about the future of Guides at a State level. 2017 applications are now open!

GAP gives girls the opportunity to develop their advocacy skills in a fun and friendly environment and contribute to decision-making processes in Guiding. GAP empowers girls to imagine more and speak out to make differences for Guides. GAP supports girls to become responsible and confident advocates and ensure that girls are front and centre of Guiding. 

GAP is made up of 20 members:
16 Guides, aged between 14–18 years old,
(known as GAP representatives), 
The State Advocacy Liaison,
•  The State Youth Leadership & Development Liaison, 
1 Welfare Officer, appointed by State Program Committee,
State Program Manager (ex-officio).

The GAP adult members are referred to as the GAP Mentors.
