Guide Enrollment Pin Senior Branches


Senior Branches offers several program choices for older girls (ages 15 - 17+). Girls choose to work on the Cadet, Junior Leader, or Ranger programs depending on their interests. In all three programs they work on a common core program and various challenges specific to their branch. Girls who complete core program requirements and branch-specific requirements are eligible to receive the Chief Commissioner's Gold Award.


Spend most of their time learning about and practising leadership in Guiding. The Cadet program involves hands-on work in Spark, Brownie, Guide, and Pathfinder Units. Cadets work with younger girls of many different age levels and units.

Junior Leaders

Work hands-on as part of the leadership team in a single unit. They concentrate on leadership skills which apply to leading the girls of the age group they have chosen to work with.


Have regular meetings with other Rangers to plan and carry out their program. The goal of Rangering in Canada is "to provide opportunities to challenge young women to develop self-confidence and their own potential as individuals, and to contribute to the future of their community."

All Cadets, Junior Leaders and Rangers make the Guide Promise when they are enrolled.

The Guide Promise

I promise to do my best,
To be true to myself, my God/faith* and Canada;
I will help others,
And accept the Guiding Law.

* Guides choose to say either God or faith when repeating their Promise, according to their personal beliefs.

The Guide Law

The Guiding Law challenges me to:
be honest and trustworthy
use my resources wisely
respect myself and others
recognize and use my talents and abilities
protect our common environment
live with courage and strength
share in the sisterhood of Guiding.


The Guide Motto

Be Prepared
