Volunteering with us isn’t just about campfires and helping girls to get their next badge - although those are special moments. It’s about empowering girls and giving them new experiences. It’s helping girls realise their own potential, sharing and developing your skills, all while having the time of your life.
Anyone! There’s no requirement to have been involved in guiding before, and we’ve got lots of
opportunities for young people too. You choose the volunteer role that matches your skills and time available. You can be a leader, a helper, a treasurer, fundraiser, administrator, trainer, the list goes on and on…
As unit leader, you’ll run the unit, lead a team of volunteers, and plan and deliver a programme of awesome activities. If you’d like to become a leader, you’ll be supported to complete our leader development programme.
Lots of new volunteers start out as a helper at regular unit meetings. You’ll work alongside other volunteers to give girls fun, friendship, challenge and adventure. There’s no responsibility for planning in this role but you’ll be a much needed extra pair of hands.
These roles are perfect for you if you can’t give time every week, want to help casually or are keen to share a specific skill or passion. This can be anything from camping or football through to photography or managing a shop!
