Volunteer with us…

Volunteering with Girlguiding Caithness means getting to try new experiences and do things you never dreamed you could – whether it’s taking a group of girls to a big event like ‘Tartan Gig’ or joining them for a fun activity like trampolining.

As a volunteer you could find yourself helping girls learn about stars, campaign for women’s rights, go camping or even travel abroad. In return, we look after volunteers with dedicated support, training and skills development to succeed at new challenges.

There are many ways that you can support Girlguiding Caithness as an adult:-

We know it can be hard to fit volunteering into a busy life – but our volunteers tell us they wouldn’t miss it for the world. Whether it’s helping out at a local group for an hour a week or lending a hand with fundraising, they tell us they value the fun, friendship and chance to learn new skills.

Regular or occasional volunteering

The role of leaders and unit helpers in running groups each week is vital to Girlguiding Caithness.
Each of our leaders is supported by a team of assistants, parents, young leaders and other volunteers, who plan and run activities with the girls, keep the finances and records up to date, and share with the world what guiding is all about! With the help of other volunteers in the unit and in your area, our leaders are part of something great.
Support roles
There is plenty you can do to support guiding, even if you don’t have time to commit regularly. After all, every hour counts.

Just a few ways you can support us are:

  • Being a driver for trips and away days
  • Helping with unit accounts and admin
  • Lending a hand with fundraising and events
  • Doing some DIY at a meeting place
  • Teaching girls skills to help them acquire a badge

What’s in it for me?

It’s not just about giving though – our volunteers gain so much from supporting us!

Whatever your role, volunteering with Girlguiding Caithness will bring you fun, friendship and fulfilment. No matter what you turn your hand to, the experiences and training that you’ll gain through guiding will bring you the thrill of personal challenge and the pride of achievement. It will also boost your CV and help you stand out from the crowd.
