We are seeking women to become Leaders in Port Hedland WA so we can run our Units of Girl Guides! We have two Guide Units for girls of different age groups in Port Hedland and another Unit meeting at the Parent and Child Centre in South Hedland and we're seeking help with any and all of these.
Girl Guide Leaders are friends, role models and mentors to our youth members. You do not require any Guiding experience, just a positive and caring attitude. This is one of the most rewarding and fun volunteer jobs around!
Will you join us and bring Guiding to girls in the Pilbara? Work with younger or older girls on Tuesday nights, 5-7pm or straight after school on Tuesdays.
What do we do? Girl Guides WA aims to empower girls and young women to become confident, self-respecting and responsible community members. We do this through fun! We play games, get outdoors, and learn awesome skills while having fun in small groups.
What do Leaders do? Our Unit Leaders meet (usually weekly) with a group of girls of a specific age group of their preference in a community centre or hall. Meetings run between 1.5 and 2 hours. During the meeting you will help girls develop skills, positive values and confidence through a program of fun activities. You'll be trained in how to run the program, and you will be supported by a Region Manager (also a volunteer) and the team of other Leaders in the Region.
How do you become a Leader? Becoming a Leader involves becoming a member of Girl Guides WA and participating our enjoyable training program. We offer training by a qualified team, online, at home and through training events.
Why should you get involved in Leadership at Girl Guides WA? Our Leaders report they have increased their all-round confidence and skills, experienced the joy of helping girls grow, made lifelong friendships, and had loads of fun! Women and girls have been part of this amazing organisation for over 100 years and we’re seeking fresh people to take us forward with our modern goals of empowerment, confidence, advocacy and making a difference.
There are no out of pocket costs and your membership and training are subsidised by the organisation.
