Girl Guides Australia is one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia for girls and young women. Girl Guides provides a unique female only space where girls are encouraged by Leaders and peers to explore their personal boundaries, in a safe and secure atmosphere. Through this girls learn that they can do anything.
Our Volunteer Leaders help the girls (and each other) to grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members through our focus on fundamentals such as community service, leadership, self-awareness and team work - these are skills that will last them a lifetime.
Being a Unit Leader or Assistant Unit Leader is a rewarding experience it offers personal development and the chance to make a difference to girls' lives.
Did you read all of that?? I had to put it in because that's the brief, but we have lots of fun, so much fun. Its a couple of hours of planning and paperwork, but it's so rewarding. Apply now you have nothing to lose and there is no age limit - so no, you're not too old. And the next bit... we do everything together. We laugh, we celebrate our wins and pick each other up when needed, so really what have you to lose?
