About Girl Guides - Girl Guides is Australia’s leading volunteer organisation for girls and young women in leadership and personal development. Our mission is to empower girls and young women to grow into confident, self-respecting and responsible community members through informal education and self-selected new experiences and challenges in creative pursuits, the great outdoors and making a contribution to their community. Our organisation turns 100 in 2021 so this is great time to become a volunteer member with many exciting opportunities ahead.
About This Opportunity - As a Volunteer District Manager, you will support the growth of Girl Guides in your area and empower your adult leadership team to deliver fun and creative activities for girls and young women. You will receive training and support continuously throughout your volunteer journey and become part of a global community of over 10 million women and girls - all while making a real difference in your community and the lives of young women and girls.
The Impact You Will Have Resilience, self-confidence and a sense of purpose are some of the hardest areas for a young girl to develop in today's world.
