Girls Rock is a not-for-profit event and the full amount of your registration fee goes to cover workshop costs, catering and other direct event costs. In 2019 registration fees were discounted because the event was supported by a generous donation. This year registration fees are back to their original prices.


Discover new insights and share information for Guiding practice and beyond, with the following workshops available for you to choose from:

  • Refresh and Revitalise: Take another step into focusing on your personal well-being, including how you can incorporate this into your volunteering, Guide Unit, or Team.
  • Step In, Up, and Out: Take a look at your current team to identify your needs and discover what opportunities are available. What other skills do you need to achieve more? What’s stopping others from stepping in, up, and/or out?
  • What’s in it for Me? How do we best retain and recognise volunteers? How do we identify future pathways and strengthen our skills, which are so valuable and sought-after outside of Guiding?
  • I’m a Member, But What Next? Do you want to work with new volunteers? Come along to understand the processes behind adult qualifications, and how to support and mentor new Leaders and Managers.
  • Communicating with Parents: Wanting to strengthen your communication with parents? Finding that Guide parents really don’t understand what Guiding offers? Bring in your term programs, newsletters, etc. and we’ll have a look at how we can improve our key messages.
  • How to Make the Most Out of a PR Stall: An opportunity to be creative with all of GGV’s PR materials: design a stall; discuss the pros and cons of layout; and identify key messages for different situations and events.

Youth members aged 13-17 are encouraged to attend Girls Rock 2020 to grow and advertise their own skills, and contribute to a forum of like-minded girls. There are two special workshops available, exclusive to our youth members:

  • What’s in it for Me? Needing to put a resume together or an application for a school leadership role? Come along and identify skills and experiences developed from within Guiding which are sought-after outside of Guiding, and learn how to sell Guiding to your friends, school, and other organisations.
  • From Little Things, Big Things Grow: Join the Program Team and State Youth Program Committee in identifying your desires and ideas about what Guiding could look like in 2020 and beyond. Come along, have your say, and help us grow some amazing ideas into reality.

Lunchtime Stalls

If you are involved in something curious, clever and amazing, and you want to share with other volunteers and Leaders, Girls Rock 2020 is the time to share it! Click here to express your interest in having a small stall during lunchtime. Please note that places are limited.
