Join the WAGGGS Volunteer Pool

Every year we impact the life of million of girls and young women in the world thanks to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers.

We are continually seeking enthusiastic volunteers to join our dedicated volunteer pool, which is comprised of adult members from WAGGGS Member Organisations, i.e. national Girl Guiding and Girl Scouting associations from across the globe. When you become a part of our volunteer pool, you gain access to a wealth of exciting opportunities. These include the chance to apply directly for various volunteering roles, stay updated with the latest news about WAGGGS and the broader Movement, and access a wide range of educational resources and learning tools.

How do volunteers join the pool?

To become a member of our volunteer pool, you'll need to follow a few steps:

  1. Receive Support from Your Member Organisation (MO): Volunteers must be officially recommended by their respective Member Organisation. To initiate this process, please refer to the actions outlined for Member Organisations provided below.
  2. Acceptance and Invitation to Campfire: Once your recommendation has been reviewed and accepted by us, you'll receive an invitation to join our online platform known as Campfire. Upon accessing this platform, we encourage you to introduce yourself and connect with fellow members. Keep in mind that new volunteering opportunities will be regularly posted on Campfire, so make it a habit to check the platform for updates.
  3. Online Induction Meeting and Self-Guided Process: As a new member of the volunteer pool, you'll also be invited to participate in an online face-to-face induction meeting. Additionally, you'll gain access to a self-guided induction process designed to familiarize volunteers with WAGGGS policies, procedures, and network operations. During this phase, you'll be requested to review and sign our Terms of Reference.

These steps are designed to prepare you for effective contributions within the WAGGGS community. We can't wait to welcome you to our pool of dedicated volunteers!
