Girl-Led GirlGuiding

At the start of 2016, we moved from being a girl-focused organisation to a girl-led organisation.

Modern girls expect to be involved in making decisions. They want to be listened to and heard as well as guided. We will confidently and knowledgeably speak out on issues affecting girls and young women.

Here’s what we changed:

  • A structure that enables girls to express their wishes nationally and locally.
  • A panel of rangers speaking out on behalf of all girls in New Zealand.
  • New tools for leaders to develop excellence in leading our girls.
  • A business and administration arm and centralised funtions that reduce volunteer time spent on administration matters.
  • Substantially less time and responsibility on girls, parents and leaders to sell biscuits.
  • Centralised property management so all properties benefit Guiding and don’t drain resources.

Online Guide Manager (OGM)

ogm.pngGirlGuiding New Zealand uses an online system, Online Guide Manager (OGM).

OGM is an easy to use product that is used by leaders to manage all their Guiding administration online and gives you access to all of your daughter’s Guiding details via the parent login area.

Using OGM you can

  • Easily update your daughter’s records eg. change of address, mobile number etc
  • See the term programme
  • See and book upcoming events
  • See and celebrate your daughter’s badge progress
  • Pay online for camps, membership etc

As a parent, you are invited to login to OGM by an email link from your daughter’s leader and they will email you links to important information such as new events coming up.

OGM can be accessed through a smart phone, tablet or desktop computer.
