Brownies are part of the Guiding Movement (Girl Guides Singapore) and is best described as the primary school version of Girl Guides. Guiding is an educational youth movement. It is open to all girls without distinction of creed, race, nationality or any other circumstance.
Each girl will learn to be a responsible citizen and to lead a useful life. Our YTPS Brownies acquire knowledge and skills through a process of research and self-discovery in the form of “test work”.
The Brownie Law

Brownies get a sense of achievement in the following ways:

2) Developing a sense of camaraderie through games and action songs and other group activities
3) Volunteering their services in school events and fund-raising activities initiated by Girl Guides Singapore to nurture the spirit of giving and develop initiative and social skills in the process.
