Olave is Girl Guides Australia’s program for young women aged 18-29.
It is completely run by and for 18-29s and offers young women the chance to continue the adventure of Girl Guiding, while taking up great opportunities in and outside Guiding by building friendships for life and gaining invaluable skills.
The program is flexible – you choose the level of participation that suits your circumstances! Young women participate in this program in either of two streams: as an individual or in a peer group and you can change between these streams at any time.
