leading adults


There are many opportunities to volunteer with Girl Guides for women who don’t feel that working with girls is their strongest suit. Girl Guides couldn’t operate without Leaders of Adults—volunteer managers who help to coordinate the Leaders of Youth and ensure the smooth running of Guide Districts and Regions.

 State Management positions are available for individuals with a strong interest in a particular area of Guiding—including Outdoors and the Environment, Arts and Culture, World Guiding and Boating, among others. These positions are held for three-year terms and are most often held by women with a strong Guiding background.

Region and District Management positions are ideal for those with strong skills in managing people.

And for those with a strong commitment to Guiding but less time available, becoming an Outdoors Leader might be the perfect option.
