World Centre Tours

EF Tours for Girls has teamed up with the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) to give scouts a truly unique experience. WAGGGS is a movement dedicated to supporting girls and young women from around the world in developing skills and confidence needed to make positive changes in their lives and communities.

Girl-led international travel tours will take girl guides and scouts to dedicated WAGGGS World Centres around the world: Our Chalet in Switzerland and Pax Lodge in the UK. It’s a chance for girls from all over the world to come together to participate in unique WAGGGS programming, learn new skills, experience international sisterhood, and make friendships that will last a lifetime.

Girls take the lead

Every girl gets to play an active role in their experience. Taking on responsibilities and being engaged in the process, from beginning to end, is a powerful way to gain leadership skills that will benefit them long after their tour has ended.

Learn how you can give your girls the opportunity to take the lead and learn skills like goal setting, decision-making, money management, communication and global citizenship.

Resources that go the extra mile

We provide resources that let girls reflect on their experiences and take them a step further—before, during, and after their tour.

Personalized learning: Every tour comes with a personalized learning platform that taps into each girl’s passions to help her put a more personal lens on the trip.

College readiness: College readiness: An EF Tour for Girls is a perfect opportunity to write about on a college application. That’s why we created the UnCommon App, a series of guided exercises to help girls write standout admissions essays.

High school and college credit: EF is an accredited educational institution, just like a school. Girls can earn academic credit by completing coursework as part of their EF tours.
