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

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 participants with the leadership practices and mindsets they need to succeed.


The JLS 2022 will empower up to 500 young women (aged 18 to 30) around the world with the leadership practices, global perspectives and a peer support network to take the lead in their lives and act on their values to bring positive social change to their world.

The JLS is informed by the WAGGGS Global Strategy 2022-2023.


In 2022 the JLS will break barriers to leadership by supporting young women to broaden their perspectives, lead for impact and create pathways for girls to be heard.

500 participants in the 2022 JLS will travel online on a new and exciting leadership journey in a safe and brave space as they embed the WAGGGS Leadership Model in their daily lives. They will break barriers to leadership for themselves and provide opportunities for 50,000 girls aged 12+ to raise their voices and together create change in their communities and our world.

Each step of the journey will give girls and young women opportunities to gain confidence, believe in themselves and feel a strong sense of international connection.
