In Albany there are currently opportunities to work with girls aged between 5 and 9 (Pippins 5-7, Brownies 7 - 9). The units meet on weeknights or weekends.
There is no experience needed, but we need reliable volunteers and previous experience working with youth is an advantage.
GirlGuiding New Zealand 's health and safety policy also has requirements around adult to child ratios, so this opportunity is best suited to someone older than 18.
