The Asociación Guías Scout del Uruguay (AGSU, Girl Guide Association of Uruguay) is the national Guiding organization of Uruguay. It serves 71 members (as of 2012).[1] Founded in 1955, the coeducational organization became an associate member of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) in 1966; the membership was revoked in 2014.

History[edit]

The 1st Montevideo Company of British Guides was formed in 1924. Guiding in Urugiay was served by international units until 1955; these units supported the formation of the Asociación Nacionál de Guías del Uruguay that year. In 1961, a separate organization for Catholic Guides was formed. Both associations merged in 1964 under the name Asociación de Guías del Uruguay. The name was changed to Asociación Guías Scout del Uruguay in 1974.[1]

The association became an associate member of WAGGGS in 1966. Due to problems in the association, the membership was revoked in 2014 after some years of suspension.
