Development of the Movement

Scouting started in 1912 and latest research shows that there were Girl Guides units in Turkey as early as 1912. After the foundation of the Turkish Republic in 1923, Girl Guiding spread to several schools over the country. In 1936, the Directorate of Scouting and Guiding was founded. This Directorate acted as the central governing body for both Guides and Scouts. 

In 1968 the Association became a joint association, and in 1991, the joint association turned into a Federation: the Scouting and Girl Guiding Federation of Turkey. 

In the Federation women and men have equal voting rights and a balanced representation.

There are girl only units and some mixed units in the Association depending on the interests and needs of the young people. No matter what type of unit, the needs and development of girls and young women, and the spirit and fundamental principles of Girl Guiding are emphasized.
