The Juliette Low Seminar

The Juliette Low Seminar (JLS) is WAGGGS’ flagship leadership development event for young people. Each event provides participants with adventures, cultural experiences and the opportunity to make friends for life.

Juliette Low Seminar

The Juliette Low Seminar (JLS) is 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.

The Hub Model

In 2019 we will be piloting a new approach to JLS. We intend to offer this opportunity to up to 1000 active members of Guiding and Scouting aged 20 to 30. We are planning to host 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.

If you have any questions you can reach the team at leadingforherworld@wagggs.org.

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