Latest What Guiding means to me Girl Guiding has inspired me in a number of ways, by Rebecca Erskine, Northern Region How Guiding inspired me Girl guiding has inspired me in a number of ways. It has encouraged me to take on new challenges that I have never experienced before such as helping the homeless community, camping and much more. It has also given me the confidence to speak to new people helping me to make friends and to speak up and provide my opinions when needed. I have also gained a lot of skills from guiding such as decision making and teamwork skills when planning programmes. Skills such as these can be used within a lot of situations and environments.’ Rebecca Erskine, Northern Region.
