Making a difference to girls’ lives and helping them achieve their potential is hugely rewarding. But there are lots of benefits for you too.
A role in Girlguiding can certainly give your CV a boost! As a volunteer, you could get involved with marketing, recruiting other volunteers, raising funds, handling budgets and managing large-scale events. In the process, you will develop a whole range of skills such as communication and organisational skills, teamwork and leadership.
If you become a Leader or Assistant Leader, you will take Girlguiding’s Leadership Qualification and will be offered lots of other training opportunities at a local and national level. Perhaps you’ve always wanted to become qualified in First Aid or learn about event management. Volunteering with Girlguiding can provide the opportunity.
Volunteering with Girlguiding is a commitment but enormous fun and incredibly rewarding. The guiding programme is packed with activities and challenges, and you’ll have a chance to experience them along with the girls.
