Interested in Volunteering?

You've come to the right place! Here you will find a list of our current volunteering opportunities - but if you don't see something that suits you, please make contact anyway, because we always need new Leaders and Helpers in every region. In fact, we are opening new Units all the time, and your town or suburb might be next!

We love welcoming women into Leadership Teams all over the Perth metropolitan area and regional WA. Please complete this form to find out more.

First of all, what do we do?
Girl Guides WA aims to empower girls and young women to become confident, self-respecting and responsible community members.

What do Leaders do?

Our Unit Leaders meet (usually weekly) with a group of girls of a specific age group of their preference in a community centre or hall. Meetings run between 1.5 and 2 hours. During the meeting you will help girls develop skills, positive values and confidence through fun activities. You will be supported by a Region Manager (also a volunteer) and the team of other Leaders in the Region.

How do you become a Leader?
Becoming a Leader involves becoming a member of Girl Guides WA and participating in training in emergency first aid and other leadership skills. We offer regular training by a qualified team.

Why should you get involved in Leadership at Girl Guides WA?
Our Leaders report they have increased their all-round confidence and skills, experienced the joy of helping girls grow, made lifelong friendships, and had loads of fun! Women and girls have been part of this amazing organisation for over 100 years and we’re seeking fresh people to take us forward with our modern goals of empowerment, confidence, advocacy and making a difference.

Ex-Guides are welcome to apply but no Guiding experience is necessary. Working with Children check will be required.

Other roles

Guiding is run by volunteers! If you can offer enthusiasm and commitment along with your skills and experience, we will provide you with all the training you might need.

There are many different roles that members of the community, including parents and guardians of youth members, are able to do. All our roles, except for Unit Leaders, are open to men as well as women. You might offer to help us manage a hall, or do the book keeping for a Unit, or share an outdoor skill such as canoeing or orienteering at events. However you choose to help, you will make an important contribution to the lives of girls and young women who are members of Girl Guides Western Australia, and to the wider community.

We also recognise that not everyone is able to give time to Guiding on a regular basis. That most definitely does not mean that you are unable to volunteer. If you would like to show your support to Girl Guides Western Australia through volunteering please contact us via the adult enquiry form or contact us to talk about what suits you.
