Welcome to Girlguiding North Yorkshire South!

A Note from our county commissioners

Welcome to our county website! North Yorkshire South (NYS) is a compact Girlguiding community based around the city of York and the towns of Selby and Tadcaster, along with numerous villages and rural communities. We are privileged to lead 500 amazing volunteers who provide fun, skills and adventures for our 1,880 young members.

As a county, we strive to ensure the continuous improvement of the opportunities and support to all our members; both long standing and new. Our meetings and events always include activities that encourage friendship, teamwork, and an understanding of others’ needs. In Girlguiding NYS there is something for everyone whatever their age or ability. We want to help girls and young women of NYS become their own person, to learn to make their own decision, to discover their true potential and achieve far more than they ever expected.

We are always keen to hear about your adventures whether at weekly meetings, online sessions or when you are away from home! If you have a story you would like us to hear, just get in touch!

Happy Guiding!
