Trefoil Guild Once a Guide, Always a Guide

Membership

The Trefoil Guild is an adult section of Guides with Membership open to women over 18.  If your time for regular Guiding is limited because of study, training, career, family or other responsibilities and you wish to keep your link with Guiding, then Trefoil Guild may be just right for you!  Trefoil Guild links members with Guide Leaders, Commissioners and Support Group members, women members of the Scout Association, and women who make the Guide Promise.

Women who hold qualifications or appointments with Girl Guides Tasmania or the Scout Association or are active Support Group/District Management Team members who have made the Guide Promise may also be members of a Trefoil Guild.  Former members of member countries of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) now residing in Australia can also join Trefoil Guild.

A Trefoil Guild is a self governing body and is financially self supporting.  Each Trefoil Guild plans it's own program, decides it's own meeting times and places, and how best it can further it's aims.

Through membership of Girl Guides Tasmania, Trefoil Guild's build support for Guiding and create an influence for good in the community.  Through the spirit of the Guide Promise members contribute to a better understanding of people throughout the world.  There are opportunities to attend State and National Gatherings and members enjoy the wider association with former Guides and Scouts in the International Fellowship of Former Scouts and Guides (IFSG).
