6th Clevedon West Brownies Need Help
We are looking for someone to support 6th Clevedon West Brownies in their weekly meetings
Purpose of the role
At the heart of girlguiding are the unit meetings that girls go along to. 6th Clevedon West Brownies meet on Tuesdays 6-7:30pm. Volunteering at unit meetings means getting messy, meeting new people and running activities that help girls discover their potential. You’ll volunteer directly with young people.
There are different roles available which are perfect if you want to:
Support girls on a regular basis and see them grow
Get stuck into adventurous (and often messy!) activities
Have a rewarding role where you’ll develop great relationships with girls and volunteers
There are different roles adults can have within units. All adults are DBS checked and expected to at least do one short online Safe Space training. Volunteers doing their leadership qualification also get lots of support.
Lots of new volunteers start out as a helper at a weekly unit meeting. You’ll work alongside other volunteers to give girls fun, friendship, challenge and adventure. There’s no responsibility for planning in this role but you’ll be the extra pair of hands needed to make unit meetings happen.
Unit occasional helper
Can’t commit on a weekly basis? Then help at a unit from time to time or on a temporary basis. A great way to volunteer around everything else you have going on.
Be an inspiring role model to girls and young women – and have a lot of fun in the process. As unit leader, you’ll run the unit, lead a team of volunteers, and plan and deliver a programme of awesome activities. If you’d like to become a leader, you’ll be supported to complete our Leadership qualification. You’ll have training on everything from planning your programme to child safety.
Have plenty of fun as an assistant leader while giving essential support to your unit leader. You’ll help to plan and deliver meetings, events and activities.
Skills and Experience
You don’t need any prior experience – just a can-do attitude!
Volunteers within the unit will be expected to work with:
- Unit leader (a volunteer who manages the unit)
- District Commissioner (a volunteer who looks after all of our volunteers in your local area)
- Other volunteers in the unit
All roles are flexible and full training will be given
