Associação Guias de Portugal (AGP) is an association that is open to the public. It is a form of volunteering and promotes the non-formal education movement of Guides, based on the method created by Robert Baden-Powell.
Its mission is to provide girls and young women with the opportunity to fully develop their potential as responsible world citizens, using its own method: gradual attribution of responsibility, encouraging group work and autonomy, encouraging commitment to the community, whilst using the outdoors as a privileged training space.
AGP is a member of the World Association of Girl Guides – WAGGGS (World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts), to which 10 million Guides spread across 150 countries belong.
