About this opportunity

Girl Guides Australia is one of the largest not-for-profit organisations in Australia for girls and young women. Girl Guides provides a unique female 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 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 or Assistant Unit Leader is a rewarding experience it offers personal development and the chance to make a difference to girls' lives.
