Volunteer Opportunities

Our members tell us that volunteering with Girl Guides is one of their most personally rewarding experiences. When you volunteer with Girl Guides you help girls and young women develop the best within themselves and discover how to connect with people in their community and around the world. Girl Guides offers opportunities for personal growth, leadership and travel. Girl Guides also provides access to organized training, activity ideas, program resources, pre-planned events, greater community involvement as well as an opportunity to learn how to plan events.

Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador Council recognizes the magnitude of the contribution made by volunteers, they play an integral part of our success.
