Adult Leaders

  • VO61632


Description

From a small handful of girls who gatecrashed the first ever Scout rally, demanding ‘something for the girls’, Girlguiding has grown into a vast and vibrant network of members across the UK.
We’re the UK’s leading charity for girls and young women. Across the whole of the UK, an amazing 100,000 volunteers help 400,000 girls aged 4 to 25 to share the life-changing experience of Girlguiding.
When a girl becomes a Rainbow, Brownie, Guide or member of the Senior Section she joins a group of girls her own age and will be led by our carefully trained and dedicated volunteers. Whatever inspires her, whatever her passions and interests, we offer her the chance to develop her potential, make friends and have fun.

Our volunteers do amazing things - some of which might surprise you. They go white water rafting, train leaders overseas, celebrate LGBT inclusion in their local Pride parade and sing along with 10,000 girls at Wembley Arena. We currently have opportunities for adult volunteers throughout Midlothian . There are 12 units in the Dalkeith area and many girls wanting to join. Units normally meet for up to 2 hours, one night per week. We have units meeting each night of the week and would like more adults to come along and help with our units so that more girls wills be given the opportunity to join .

Rainbows are aged 5-7, Brownies 7-10, Guides 10-14, Senior Section 14-26.

Volunteers should register their interest via the Girl Guiding website at https://go.girlguiding.org.uk/join-us/join-as-volunteer/

Organisation aims and objectives

We provide programmes of activities and opportunities that promote equality and diversity and that are relevant to today’s girls. We enable girls and young women in the area to enjoy a unique girl–only space and to have a voice in what they do.
