Girlguiding isn’t just for girls. In total, we have around 100,000 adult volunteers and supporters.
More than 80,000 amazing volunteers contribute over ten million hours to guiding every year. In return, we offer training and the opportunity to develop new skills.
There are many volunteer roles in guiding. Many volunteers give their time as Leaders or Assistant Leaders for guiding units and get to see girls enjoying events and activities that they have organised. Other volunteers take on administrative responsibilities, or help out with driving or maintenance on an occasional basis.
What our Leaders say
Volunteer with Girlguiding
‘Being a Leader gave me the confidence to get back out to work – I initially signed up to do it every other week. Now I’m thinking of retraining and working with children!’ Pamela
‘It’s been fantastic sharing all the experiences and laughs with some close personal friends.’ Liz
‘As Leaders we learn marketing, leadership and communication skills and about fundraising, programme planning and teamwork. These are transferable skills which are extremely valuable in the workplace.’ Nina
‘After studying English at university, I decided I wanted to teach. My experience within guiding helped me to gain a place on one of the best teaching courses and now I am teaching English to Guide age and above!’ Komal
