Be Prepared is the motto of Girl Guides around the world. This challenges us to think critically as we work to meet the needs of today’s girls and Guiders in providing girl-focused programming.
Safe Guide is the document that GGC provides to guide Members in the preparation of plans for exciting activities and opportunities in their quest to deliver innovative activities for girls.
Safe Guide Training
New Members are required to take Safe Guide training within their first 6 months of Membership. Training is provided locally in face to face sessions and is available on line. The e-learning version is available through the Learning Library where you can set up an account and complete the training on line.
Safe Guide Updated July 2015
Safe Guide has been revised to provide you with more direction and support. As well, some wording changes have been made for clarification but they do not change procedures. You will need to refer to the new document (posted below) when planning activities. All earlier versions are out of date.

Here are a few highlights:
1. For first aid training, blended learning courses (online courses with an in-person hands-on learning component) are included as an acceptable option.
2. When a supervisor is taking a medication that could have an impact on her ability to supervise girls she must inform other supervisors of the situation and supervision adjusted accordingly.
3. There are more relaxed age restrictions for Activity Facilitators for Green and Yellow level activities.
4. The Incident Report (INS.01) should be sent to your Provincial Office as well as the National office.
5. For adult only events, individualized emergency response plans must be prepared to support anyone in attendance with a disability who ahs indicated they require assistance.
As of September 1, 2015 all activities must be planned based on the July 2015 version of Safe Guide.
We recommend that Members print the General Planning for Activities section of Safe Guide for handy reference.
