Are you a parent, student or aged 18 to 65
and looking for a fun way to get involved
with your community? Then you're just the
sort of person we are looking for.
There are many roles available
to adults within Girlguiding.
Whilst we hope that most
volunteers will want to be
become unit Leaders, we do
understand that not everyone has
the time to make such a
commitment, below are a few of
the roles available to adult
UNIT/ ASSISTANT LEADER
- Every Rainbow, Brownie, Guide
and Senior Section unit has at
least one qualified leader. The
unit Leader has overall
responsibility for the unit and
is usually supported by
- If you can help on a regular
basis, once a week or fortnight,
you could become a unit helper.
Unit helpers assist the unit
leaders and are an essential
part of the unit. Girlguiding UK
has to follow strict adult to
child ratios for example, one
additional adult helper for a
Brownie unit can mean that up to
eight more girls can join.
- Sometimes it's really useful
to have a few adults on hand to
help the unit Leader with
administrative tasks. This could
range from producing letters on
a computer to researching
booking details for a trip or
photocopying activity sheets.
- If you have a head for
figures, you could play a vital
role in helping the Unit Leader
or District with the accounts.
However you choose to help out
you, will be playing a
significant part in the lives
and development of girls and
young women whilst developing
your own skills and experience.
