WE’RE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS

We are looking for adult women who can attend weekly meetings (ranging from 1-2 hours in length) and dedicate some additional time towards planning unit activities and camps.

Guiders work in teams with a minimum of two Guiders present at each meeting. Training and mentorship is provided within Lions Area.

Please consider joining Girl Guides of Canada as a volunteer in Squamish! Our unit volunteers are our most valuable asset. If you are able to be a co-leader with another parent or a friend, and are willing to give 2 hours a week for a 10-month commitment, please contact Ainsley for further information. We appreciate it, and we know the girls appreciate it too!

Benefits:

  • Ongoing mentorship available to assist you with the program and Administration positions;
  • Ongoing training opportunities in program delivery, leadership, communication, and financial management;
  • Opportunities to participate in District, Area or Provincial Guiding events (Snowflake Ball, SOAR, Mix-It-Up, bridging events with other branches of Guiding (Sparks, Brownies, Guides, Pathfinders), Discovery Camp, etc.), as well International trips.
  • Networking with a large group of talented women who hold various positions within Guiding (unit leaders, treasurers, commissioners, etc.) and who are always willing to share their experience and knowledge with you.
  • Opportunity to build and gain experience to improve your professional resume.

Job Sharing::

Encouraged! Many hands make light work. Having one or two people as co-leaders will not only lighten the load for each person, it will also give you someone to share ideas with!
