Your Campus Connection
Welcome to Girl Guides! We empower young girls and women to be everything they want to be, and as a volunteer, you will help make that happen! Our volunteers support girls as they build confidence, develop new skills and become leaders in their communities. With multiple locations throughout Edmonton, making it easy for you to commute to a location that is convenient for you.
As part of a unit’s leadership team, you’ll facilitate fun and engaging program activities, like scavenger hunts, arts and crafts, outdoor exploration, games and more. You can choose to work with girls in one of five branches: Sparks (age 5-6), Brownies (age 7-8), Guides (age 9-11), Pathfinders (age 12-14) or Rangers (age 15-17).
What You’ll Do as A Volunteer Leader:
-Create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive space for girls!
-Plan regular unit meetings in person, outdoors and online, during which you’ll facilitate girl-driven programming that is fun and engaging.
-Organize in-person or virtual opportunities beyond unit meetings, including community service activities and camps.

-Promote Girl Guides to girls and women locally.
