Volunteer at Girl Guides

Volunteering with Girl Guides means you choose to have fun, make connections, build skills, create positive change and inspire today’s girls to become everything they want to be.

Girl Guides offers girls and women the chance to make new friends, challenge themselves and put their ideas into action through an amazing range of activities developed to support girls.

When you volunteer with kids at Girl Guides of Canada–Guides du Canada (GGC), you're playing a key role in providing girls aged 5-17 with the fun and the challenge of Guiding. You'll be their cheerleader and mentor as you help your girls develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the fun, the smiles and giggles, and all the confidence-building moments for the girls – and for yourself.

As a volunteer Guider, you'll help girls:

  • Experience fun adventures in a safe, inclusive, and supportive environment
  • Learn the skills that will help them confidently navigate their world
  • Discover they can achieve more than they ever imagined
  • Make a difference in the world

What's in it for you?

  • Make a positive impact on the lives of girls in your community
  • Opportunities to develop highly transferable skills such as leadership, communication and planning
  • Access to member-only training
  • Access to special events such as regional rallies, camping and international travel
  • Grow your group of friends in a fun environment

Take the next step and start making an impact today!

Testimonials from our adult members

  • I have taken several trips, to Our Chalet in Switzerland and to the East Coast of Canada, and taking on this challenge from conception to completion meant that I was able to learn new skills in leadership, finance, and organized travel.

    Elise, Pathfinder Unit Guider

  • I have made friends from around the province, country and world who are near and dear to my heart. Many who will be in my life forever. I have found where I belong.

    Heather, Provincial Trainer

  • There is nothing quite like being a part of that moment when a girl realizes for the first time that she can do something new.

    Jennifer, Link Member, Unit Guider

  • It has been four years since my return as an adult member, and I continue to be a part of Guiding because I love the work that I do. It is so gratifying to have a profound impact on the lives of young girls, by helping them build their skills and their self-confidence, and creating a positive environment where girls are free to be themselves.

    Vyana, Brownie Unit Guider

  • Guiding has allowed me to find my voice and be able to speak up for what I believe in both in Guiding and in other parts of my life. It has also allowed me to understand how I really can be a positive influence and role model to the girls that I work with each week.

    Kirsten, adult member

  • As an adult, Guiding gave me a lot of opportunities for leadership that have helped me with my career time and time again. When I applied to a Bachelor of Education degree, Guiding was what got me in. When I changed careers and got into fitness and recreation, Guiding gave me the upper hand in applying for management jobs.
