All donations will go 100% to supporting young women to take part in the Lead Out Loud project. £600 will cover the Juliette Low Seminar event fee for one young woman. A further £600 will help her with travel costs and post-event mentoring. If you donate over £100, you will receive a letter or video from the young woman you are supporting and a digital copy of the JLS impact report one year after the seminar. If you donate over £600 you will also receive an invitation to participate virtually in a JLS session.


Juliette Low Seminar

The Juliette Low Seminar (JLS) was traditionally held twice, every three years. Since 1932 we have been providing this inter-cultural, inspirational and international experience. It builds friendships across borders and helps young women step outside of their comfort zones. This event is all about empowering the next generation of leaders with the leadership practices and mindsets they need to succeed.

#JLS2019 - The new 'HUB' model

This year we are trying a new approach that will bring the JLS to more people then ever before. We intend to offer this opportunity to up to 1000 active members of Guiding and Scouting aged 20 to 30. We will be hosting multiple JLS “hubs” in every Region at the same time. These will be hosted by the five World Centres, as well as some Member Organisations. Each JLS event will be an international, cross-cultural leadership development experience. We will be taking the very best parts of JLS and making it bigger.

Our upcoming JLS event will be 14 to 20 November 2019. It will run as parallel events in multiple locations and languages for the first time.
