Girl Guides seek leaders

LEONGATHA Girl Guides started their year by celebrating Australia Day.

The event developed the girls’ community awareness and also at this time of year, Leongatha Girl Guides are looking for new leaders, unit helpers and other volunteers.

In the last six months three leaders have had to give up their Guiding commitments due to the arrival of a first child, increased work commitments and moving from the district.

These wonderful ladies have selflessly given their time to help Guides develop skills, however they have gained as much as they have given.

If you want to develop your leadership skills, learn new things and have fun, why not think of volunteering with Girl Guides?

Volunteers work with a group of enthusiastic young girls in a positive, encouraging environment.

If you are over 18 years of age and are a caring, enthusiastic person and enjoy working and having fun with young people, then you are the kind of person we are looking for to be a volunteer with Girl Guides in South Gippsland.

Girl Guides is an organisation that works to help young girls grow into confident, self-respecting, responsible community members.

The fundamentals of our program are leadership, outdoors, service, Guiding traditions and the patrol system. We are an ethics based organisation, but we believe in learning through fun.

Being a volunteer with Girl Guides can have all sorts of benefits, including a variety of personal and professional developments, building networks and making new friends.

If you think this might be for you, contact Chris Oliver at coliver@guidesvic.org.au
