Girl Guides Australia is one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia for girls and young women. Girl Guides provides a unique girls only space where girls are encouraged by Leaders and peers to explore their personal boundaries, in a safe and secure atmosphere. Through this, girls learn that they can do anything.
Our Volunteer Leaders and Unit Helpers help the girls (and each other) to grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members through our focus on fundamentals such as community service, leadership, self-awareness and team work - these are skills that will last them a lifetime.
Being a Unit Leader, Assistant Leader or Unit Helper is a rewarding experience it offers personal development and the chance to make a difference to girls' lives.
