The International Scout and Guide Fellowship (ISGF) is a worldwide organization of adults in support of Scouting and Guiding.

The International Scout and Guide Fellowship is open to former members of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS) and the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM), and to other adults who wish to support Scouting.

It was created in 1953 under the name of International Fellowship of Former Scouts and Guides (IFOFSAG).

ISGF is supported by WOSM and WAGGGS, and it has members in 63 countries presently. Furthermore, there are members of Central Branch (individual members or groups) in 41 countries.[1]

In 2013, the 55,500 members celebrated the 60th anniversary of ISGF by carrying out projects to the benefit of communities in which they live and work or worldwide.[2]
