Why don’t you join today as a volunteer?
Your expertise, skills, interests, life experience, and availability are needed! Without the commitment of the nearly 1.5 million volunteers around the world, Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting could not happen.
Whether it’s an hour or two every month or more regular commitments, there are several exciting and flexible ways young women and adults can participate in Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting at regional, national and international levels.
You can work directly with girls, support adults working with them, be part of a WAGGGS committee, volunteer at one of the four World Centres or become a WAGGGS representative at the United Nations. As a volunteer you can make new friends and learn new skills such as leadership and organizational abilities. Learn more about volunteering opportunities.
