The Western Hemisphere Region works with various partners to provide opportunities to our Member Organisations to participate in projects and programmes designed to help grow Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting.
At regional level we collaborate closely with the Caribbean Link of Guiding. Since 1958, this organisation has worked to strengthen Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting across the Caribbean region with a particular focus on training. It has 23 members, the majority of which are also Member Organisations of WAGGGS.
In 2014, the Western Hemisphere Region and the Caribbean Link embarked on a joint initiative to expand leadership training throughout this part of the region. Two successful events since then in Barbados and Trinidad and Tobago have exposed several Member Organisations to the WAGGGS’ National Leadership Development Programme (NLDP). The region has collaborated with the Caribbean Link to roll out our new volunteer consultant model which provides Member Organisations with tailor-made support in the areas of governance, training and programme delivery.
