Unit volunteer

What will I do?

At the heart of guiding are the unit meetings that girls go along to each week. Volunteering at unit meetings means getting messy, meeting new people and running activities that help girls discover their potential. You’ll volunteer directly with young people and can choose to work with girls in Rainbows, Brownies, Guides or Rangers. Unit meetings are usually an hour once a week.

These roles are perfect if you want to:

  • Support girls on a regular basis and see them grow
  • Get stuck into adventurous (and often messy!) activities
  • Have a rewarding role where you’ll develop great relationships with girls and volunteers

What skills will I need?

You need to be:

  • Enthusiastic
  • Comfortable working with children
  • Passionate about providing girls with fun, friendship, challenge and adventure

Full training will be given

How long does this role last?

As long as you like!

Who will support me?

You will be supported by other volunteers in your unit, and by a District Commissioner, who will make sure you have access to all the training and support you need.
