Seashell Girl Guides
Girl Guiding in Ballygarrett was established in 2011 to work with girls in the local community in our aim to give girls confidence. In Ballygarrett, we have all age groups of Irish Girl Guides (IGG). We chose the name Seashell Girl Guides to be inclusive of girls coming from all villages in our local area to become members. The age branches are:
-Seashell Ladybirds (age 5-7 years)
-Seashell Brownies (age 7-10 years)
-Seashell Girl Guides (age 10-14 years)
-Seashell Senior Branch (age 14-30 years)
-and opportunities for adult volunteers from age 18+
Irish Girl Guides has approximately 12,000 youth and adult members in Ireland, and 10 million members worldwide. We are a youth-driven, dynamic organisation offering a varied and exciting programme for girls and young women aged 5-30.
As a girl-only movement, girls are free to develop and express themselves in a safe, comfortable, supported setting. They enjoy the activities as they can ‘just be girls’ without any pressures and learn to be themselves in a safe environment while learning the skills that will one day help them to be responsible citizens and adults.
