Adults in Guiding give back to the community and inspire girls and young women to be their best. Whether it’s a long term commitment or a short term project, there are opportunities to suit you. Any woman 18 years and older who is prepared to make the Guide Promise can be an adult member.
An Information Kit for All Volunteers is COMING SOON.
With loads of specialised roles within the Girl Guides Tasmania organisation, there is a perfect role for everyone.
Check out the Positions and Opportunities page for more information.
Unit Leaders implement the Australian Guide Program in a Guide Unit. They help the girls to plan creative, fun-filled programs that reflect the principles of Guiding. They develop leadership skills through becoming qualified Leaders in the Australian Learning and Qualification Program.
The Australian Learning and Qualification Program is a national program, providing training for leadership roles. The Leadership Qualification for Unit Leaders and Assistant Unit Leaders focuses on the skills needed to manage a Guide Unit and deliver the Australian Guide Program. It takes approximately 6 months to complete and includes reading, attendance at training and activities to complete while working with the Guides.
All Girl Guides Tasmanian Adult Members require a National Police Certificate Check by Tasmanian Police, which is a State Government requirement for people who work or volunteer with children. Volunteers will also be required to hold current Working With Vulnerable People Registration.
Girl Guides Tasmania can provide assistance with the National Police Certificate Check applications and payment of the lodgement fee.
