The Olave Program is for members of Guiding in Australia aged 18-30, and focuses on the three aspects of community, adventure and self-development.
Olaves take opportunities to:
- Make a positive difference in their communities through volunteering, service and advocacy
- Challenge themselves through new experiences especially in the outdoors and internationally
- Develop skills and knowledge to enable them to grow as individuals
The Olave Program is underpinned by the Guide Promise and Law and the innovations and traditions of Australian Guiding. It is flexible in that it adapts to suit the needs of its members and is governed entirely by those members. Olave members form self-governed peer groups who plan, implement and participate in scheduled activities.
Alternatively, members can participate and represent Guiding and young women as an individual in local, State or National events.
The peak achievement award is the Olave Baden-Powell Award.
