What do Leaders do?

  Leaders are aged from eighteen to sixty-five.

Girlguiding UK isn't just for girls; there are about 80,000 adult volunteers or helpers that contribute to over ten million hours to guiding every year.  Becoming a Guide leader is a great way to make new friends and add to your personal skills; in return Girlguiding UK offers training and the opportunity to develop new skills.  You could work with a Rainbow, Brownie, Guide or Senior Section unit or you may choose to simply become an advisor in a particular field.

Guiders are volunteers who are trained to help girls and young women to reach their potential and equip them with the necessary life skills. To become a Guider you must be willing to make the Guide promise and undertake a small amount of training. You must enjoy working with girls and young women. You need energy, enthusiasm and a sense of humour is essential. Help and advice are always available.

After training you will be qualified to do the following, which are useful enhancements for CVs when seeking employment.

run a regular unit meeting incorporating a varied and balanced programme

maintain unit records and accounts

provide and healthy and safe environment for the girls

take part in the associations leadership scheme

Whatever your skills and interests, guiding is flexible and volunteering can be arranged to fit around a busy lifestyle.  To join our exciting team visit our volunteer page or contact the Division Commissioner, email commissioner@stoneoutward.co.uk
