Welcome to the Succession Planning Resource
developed by the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS)
Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting globally supports the development of young people through educational programmes, leadership development and advocacy work. Through these programmes, WAGGGS and its Member Organizations provide girls and young women develop valuable life skills that can be used in their careers, as volunteers and in their local communities.
Succession planning is essential to supporting strong, growing Member Organizations that can continue to provide these vital programmes. Our international Movement has seen enormous growth over the past 100 years, and by planning for our future and developing young and adult leaders, we will make sure that international Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting will continue to do its vital work for the next 100 years.
Ensuring that you have a strong, effective group of people to take your Member Organization forward will help you achieve your aims and continue to support girls and young women. We encourage you to make use of this publication to inform your succession planning, and we hope you will find it helpful.
