Girl Guide Leaders - volunteer with girls from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds of various ages in areas including Dianella, Leederville, Langford, Mirrabooka and South Hedland.
We are seeking women 18 years and over to be Girl Guide Leaders or Unit Helpers in specialist Units for Girl Guides from CaLD or ATSI backgrounds. The group meets weekly. 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!
What do we do? Girl Guides WA aims to empower girls and young women to become confident, self-respecting and responsible community members.
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 fun activities. 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 in training in emergency first aid and other leadership skills. We offer regular training by a qualified team.
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.
You are welcome to volunteer as Unit Leader or as a casual volunteer, Unit helper or assistant. Ex-Guides are welcome to apply but NO EXPERIENCE is necessary.
