Girlguiding is the leading UK charity for girls and young women. Across the country, nearly half a million girls attend units where they are inspired to be their best and face the challenges of growing up today. Girlguiding is a girls-only organisation that aims to give girls the space and opportunities they need to thrive, grow and give back to their communities. For over 100 years, Girlguiding has been providing new experiences and helping girls to build life-long friendships. We focus on issues important to young women today and give them a voice through our girl-led programme of activities.
Girlguiding West Yorkshire North is a local branch of Girlguiding working right across the Bradford area (and beyond!). Come and join us to see how you can make a difference in the lives of young women in the local community. We need volunteers to help provide fun opportunities in Rainbow units (ages 5-7), Brownies (ages 7-10), Guides (ages 10-14) and Rangers (ages 14-18).
Do you want the opportunity to gain experience of working with young people? Do you want the chance to develop new skills, make a difference in the local community and become a part of a team of volunteers?
We are looking for female students to take on the role of unit helper or assistant leaders at rainbow, brownies and guide units across Bradford.
You will have the opportunity to undertake training in areas such as first response, safeguarding, gender equality and Girlguiding specific programme training. We will support you to develop leadership, communication, planning and organisation skills. In return, we ask for positive, friendly and organised volunteers who are committed to attending a session once a week.
Join our network of volunteers to have fun, gain new skills and have the chance to make a difference in the lives of young women in Bradford. We have a range of age groups, evenings and times of meetings so get in touch!
