Girl Guide Leader Southern River - 5-10yo girls

Mentoring & Advocacy Regular - more than 6 months Southern River WA

About this opportunity

Southern River Harmony Girl Guides aged 5-10 years are seeking women to become Girl Guide Leaders. The Unit meets weekly in Southern River for 1.5 hours on Wednesday afternoons. 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!

You will be in training during Term 4 2020 as two Leaders are retiring at the end of 2020. Then you will start as a Leader, working with the remaining qualified Leader in 2021.

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.
