Student Scout And Guide Organisation

Southampton SSAGO is the University of Southampton's very own Student Scout and Guide Organisation.


About Student Scout And Guide Organisation

Do you want to learn new skills working with young people and make lifelong friends? If so, the Southampton Student Scout and Guide Organisation (Southampton SSAGO) is for you! We are a University of Southampton society, mainly interested in volunteering in the local Scouting and Guiding community.

However, even if you’re not involved, we welcome anyone who is interested in Scouting and Guiding associated activities – from camping to bake-offs, campfires to film nights, pub crawls to hiking, and much more!

If you want to work towards your Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award, the world's leading youth achievement award, recognised in over 144 nations, then we are the group to help you achieve it. Find out more about the Duke of Edinburgh's Award here:
