Youth Work Helpers and Team Leaders

Support girls and young women for an hour a week to have adventures, have fun, and make a difference in their local community! Join our team of volunteers, with groups meeting across the Borders.

Would you like to go on fun adventures, explore and laugh with friends?

At Girlguiding we do everything from camping to campaigning! We’re all about girls and young women laughing, learning and having adventures. Why not join the fun?
Meetings usually run on weekday evenings for about an hour, and you can choose how much or how little you can help out! Our different sections cover ages 4-18, so there’s something for everyone.

Youth volunteering with Girlguiding Scotland looks great on a CV, and can improve skills like teamwork, leadership, communication, creativity and IT. It’s great experience if you want a career in youthwork or education. You can get extra training like First Aid, the disclosure check for working with children is paid for by us and we’ll help you every step of the way. There are loads of meetings happening all over the Borders, so you can join one close to you.
Our volunteers are what makes Girlguiding amazing, and we welcome people of all backgrounds and walks of life. Come have a chat with us, you won’t regret it!
