Guiding in Mosman is a wholly voluntary organisation. If you’re an adult over 18 years of age, you can help make Guiding happen through becoming a volunteer member.
Volunteering with Girl Guides is a fun and rewarding way to help open a world of possibilities for girls. All you need is a little extra time, and the desire to do something worthwhile and fulfilling. There are numerous ways to help out in both a formal and an informal capacity.
As a Unit Leader or Helper
If you have enthusiasm for life, a willingness to try new things, and a sense of community, you have all the skills required to be a Unit Leader or Helper. The only other thing you’ll need is the time to commit to supporting the girls in your Guide Unit on a weekly basis. Your role would include the following:
- Leading your Unit of girls
- Helping your Unit decide what activities it wants to do
- Facilitating those activities
- Liaising with both parents and the staff in the office of Girl Guides NSW & ACT
- Attending age-appropriate events with your Unit.
Girl Guides – Monday 6.00 – 7.30pm
Brownie Guides – Wednesday 6.00 – 7.30pm
Training and Support Provided
Every month, Girl Guides NSW & ACT run Guiding Orientation webinars. They run for about an hour and are the place to start, if you’re thinking about becoming a Guide Leader. Leadership Qualification training is then provided at no cost to those making the commitment to become involved. Throughout your training, an experienced Guide Leader will support you and act as your learning partner.
District or Support Group Roles
If working with girls is just not you right now, or you’re unable to make a regular weekly commitment, you might be more suited to being a Leader of Adults.
Girl Guides couldn’t operate without volunteer managers who help to coordinate our Leaders and ensure the smooth running of Guide Districts. If your background includes skills in managing people, you might be the ideal candidate for a District management position.
Share your skills and experiences
Although you mightn’t be able to commit to a leadership or management role, there are still lots of ways to be involved. Community members often work together in a volunteer capacity with parents and Leaders to build their local Guide District. Did you know you can even join or volunteer for any role without having a daughter in Girl Guides?
Your Guide District’s management team or support group will likely have different roles to suit a variety of talents. Through volunteering, you’ll join other enthusiastic and friendly people helping your Girl Guides in your community through activities such as:
- Assisting with maintaining the hall or meeting place
- Promoting Guides in the community
- Helping raise funds to assist with hall insurance, resources and equipment used by the District.
