Unit Leader - Girl Guides WA (Kalgoorlie, Armadale)

Young People Regular - more than 6 months Across: Kalgoorlie WA, Armadale WA

About this opportunity

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 venue or school. 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 and Helpers. If you want less commitment, Unit Helper is an untrained role where you simply turn up and help out each week How do you become a Leader? Becoming a Leader involves becoming a member of Girl Guides WA and participating in training. We offer complimentary 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. All women 18+ are eligible to volunteer! A Working with Children check, Police clearance and First Aid training are required and Girl Guides WA will cover for these costs.
