Program and ideals[edit]

Girls are organised into groups by age, as in other Guiding and Scouting organisations. Brownies are between age 7 and 11. Girl Guides are between age 12 and 16. Senior Girl Guides are between age 17 and 23.

The Girl Guide emblem incorporates elements of the coat of arms of Kuwait.
