International Scout and Guide Fellowship
The International Scout and Guide Fellowship (ISGF) is a worldwide organization of Scout alumni in support of Scouting and Guiding who want to strengthen dialogue between communities through community-oriented projects worldwide.
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 adults who did not have the opportunity to be Scouts, Guides, or active Scout/Guide leaders, but who believe in the Scouting ideals.
It was created in 1953 under the name of International Fellowship of Former Scouts and Guides (IFOFSAG). The first organisation of grown-up scouts was formed in Copenhagen, Denmark april 24th 1933 as Sct. Georgs Gilderne
ISGF is supported by WOSM and WAGGGS, and it has members in 59 countries presently. Furthermore, there are now members of Central Branch (individual members or groups) in 24 countries.
In 2003, the 100,000 members celebrated the 50th anniversary of ISGF by carrying out projects to the benefit of communities in which they live and work or worldwide.
