About this role

Rainbows are the youngest section of Girlguiding (aged 5-7). With guiding girls have fun, adventure and the space to discover their potential; they take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. Everything from working in a team, to taking the lead, to speaking out on issues they care about. It helps them develop the skills and confidence to become the young women they want to be. And to make a difference to the world around them.

Brownies is about trying new things that teach girls aged seven to 10 about themselves, their community and their world. Brownies introduces girls to a world of new opportunities, challenges and fun. Girls go along to camps, holidays, day trips and sleepovers. They get together with their friends at regular meetings where they learn new hobbies, get creative, develop skills and have outdoor adventures.

We are looking for adult volunteers to support the running of weekly meetings of 2nd Birstall Brownies on Mondays 5.30-7pm or 3rd Birstall Brownies on Thursdays 6-7.30pm. You may have an interest in working with children aged 7-10 in order to develop skills in preparation to work with this age group as a future employment opportunity, or just want to help shape and mould the future generation of strong, independent young women.

A knowledge of Safeguarding and First Aid would be preferable, but full training is provided if not. There are also opportunities to gain qualifications in Leadership if desired. You must be able to work as part of a team and be a positive role model in your actions, but ultimately willing to try something new and have some fun!
