Link & Trefoil Guild

Trefoil Guild



Girl Guides of Canada Link Program

The Link program is all about creating opportunities for young women aged 18 – 30 to grow, take on new challenges and deepen their involvement with GGC. Members taking part in the Link program may also hold other roles in Guiding e.g. Unit Guider.
The objectives of the Link program are for young women to:

  • Gain an increased ability to lead and advocate within Guiding
  • Become more engaged with Guiding through new social connections, as well as gain a sense of purpose and accomplishment
  • Participate in skill-building activities and new experiences that leave you better equipped to navigate the transition to adulthood

The Link program has four themes: Personal and Professional Development, Outdoors and Adventure, Health and Well Being and Active Citizenship. Within each theme there are activities you can complete and earn theme crests.

Find out more about the Link program

While the Link program can be completed individually, it is designed to inspire social connection between young women in Guiding. For that reason, Link members join local Link units. Link units are groups of young women within a specific geographic area that get together to complete the Link program. Together, they decide on their goals for the program, the amount of time they want to commit and which themes and activities they will participate in. Link units are self-directed and participation is voluntary.
