Inspire Girls and Young Women To Be Their Best
Adults, through guiding, can give back to the community and inspire girls and young women to be their best. Whether it’s a long term commitment or a short term project, there are opportunities to suit your lifestyle. Any woman over 18, who is prepared to make the Guide Promise can be an Adult member. Any adult over 18 can be a Volunteer or join their local Support Group.
Leaders are volunteers. They are carefully chosen women who understand and care about the needs of girls and young women and enjoy sharing their time and talents to support Guides to grow and learn.
BRAVO to our fabulous Leaders who work directly with Girl Guides supporting them in their Fun, Friends and Adventures. Leaders are able to achieve awards, badges and recognition through district, local, state, national and international events. Leaders attend Girl Guide excursions, camps, and events and receive ongoing training within their District.
Leaders come from all walks of life, families and working situations.
Leaders and Adult members are bound to a Code of Conduct and complete
Child Safe training in relation to policies and procedures regarding the protection of children.
