Our volunteers are a dynamic network of women with different skills and experiences. Together, we help girls and young women to grow, explore, and believe in themselves.
We offer many different volunteer opportunities:
- leading or helping with your local Guide Unit on a weekly basis
- helping out with administrative tasks such as finances or social media
- taking on a leadership role within a management team
- occasional skills-based volunteering (e.g. lead a photography class at a Unit meeting)
⭐ Volunteer with youth members as a Unit Leader or Helper
Lead and inspire youth members at our weekly Guide Unit meetings in locations all across the state. Weekend activities and events are optional (but lots of fun!) and can include outdoor activities, camps, sleepovers, hikes, and state events like Snoozefest and Snoozerella.
Unit Leaders and Assistant Leaders faciliate a diverse weekly program based on the ideas of the girls in their Unit.
We provide training, experience, resources and support each step of the way through your volunteer journey. All Leaders attain an accredited Leadership qualification and are able to build on this accreditation with Outdoors Qualifications.
⭐ Volunteer with other volunteers
Not available at the same time each week? Looking for a different way to get involved? Looking to build on your Leadership experience?
You might like to explore being a volunteer Manager. Our volunteer Managers help coordinate our Leaders and ensure the smooth running of Guide Districts and Regions.
⭐ Other Ways to get involved
There are plenty of other ways to get involved with Guiding across Victoria, from occasional skills-based volunteering to supporting with administration tasks to helping keep our Guide halls and properties in great condition!
⭐ Child Safe Child Friendly
Girl Guiding is a Child Safe Child Friendly organisation. All Adult Members and volunteers are required to complete Child Safe Child Friendly training, stay up to date with relevant policies and procedures, consent to maintaining updated background checks including a National Police Check and a current Working with Children Check, and commit to our Code of Conduct.
