Are you interested in providing Girls and Young Women opportunities to build resilience, confidence, and a strong sense of identity? We are looking for someone with a bit of oomph’, a creative mind, and a willingness to develop their skills and experience.


We require more amazing Volunteers to join GirlGuiding NZ to provide great Girl-Led programmes and activities for our Girls and Young Women.
