You can make a difference - no Guiding experience necessary!

We urgently need women to volunteer as leaders in our units. We currently have more girls wanting to join Girl Guides than we actually take on because we don’t have enough adult volunteers to run unit meetings and organise activities. If you can spare a couple of hours a week in the afternoon or in the evening, we would love to hear from you.

To find out more about our free leadership training program of mostly on-the-job, self-paced learning, call Phoebe on 9479 9800 or email [email protected]. You can attend a couple of meetings to see if Guiding is for you, then you can start your journey as an official Leader-in-Training, and the adventure begins...

Meet our newly qualified Unit leaders
Congratulations to Salina, from Doubleview Dolphin Guides, who has qualified as a Unit leader. Salina has been a Girl Guide since she was about six and has been a Junior Leader for at least two years, so it felt like a natural progression for her to keep going. “I really wanted to give back to the Leaders who have given so much to me," she said. "Many of the Leaders I had when I was younger are still here and it's a really wonderful experience for me to be able to work alongside them now that I am older." If you think you could be the next Salina, please get in touch with Phoebe at Guide House. She can help you reach your potential by supporting you every step of the way through the leadership process.

Congratulations to Hannah, from Joondalup Harmony Guides, who has qualified as a Unit leader. Hannah has been a Girl Guide since she was six, has been a Junior Leader for three years, and is now enjoying the rewards that come from gaining her adult qualification. “I really enjoy being a Leader because it’s so different to everything else that you do in your day-to-day life,” she said. “It’s been a very positive and rewarding experience. I would say to anyone thinking of doing it, just go for it; it’s not as scary as it looks. You get so much support, so many other Leaders have reached out to help me, and there’s lots of lovely people around you all the time.”

Welcome to Caitlin, from the Bayswater Honey Bees, who recently qualified as a Unit leader. Caitlin has been a Girl Guide since she was 12 and has been a Junior Leader for four years, so it was a natural progression for her to get her adult qualification. “I’m really looking forward to being in charge of things, organising activities and camps,” said Caitlin. “I like being closer to the other Leaders in the area; I feel like my leadership skills have grown phenomenally. I feel a lot more comfortable taking a lead role in things and talking to the girls.”
