Girl Guides seeks local leadership

Local Girl Guides of Canada units seek leaders as meetings resume.

Dear editor,

Throughout the North Island, Girl Guides of Canada units are starting up weekly meetings: Sparks (Kindergarten & Grade 1), Brownies  (Grades 2-3), Guides (Grades 4-6), Pathfinders  (Grades 7-9) and Rangers  (Grades 10-12). We are happy to be accepting new members into many of these groups in Port Alice, Port McNeill and Port Hardy.

Unfortunately there are some gaps, most notably for the Port Hardy Guides and Pathfinders age groups, due to lack of enough leaders (although all groups would welcome more helpers!). Women aged 19+ are invited to volunteer as a member of a team to help lead Units. You will be making a really positive impact in the lives of girls in our community, plus expanding your own leadership skills.

Training is supplied and all volunteers are screened. Some of our Guiders have volunteered because they recall what fun they had as a member of Girl Guides of Canada when they were younger and have felt inspired to “pay-it-forward” to a new generation of girls. Or perhaps you were a leader in the past and can find some time once again to help out in some way, such as acting as a mentor to a new Guider or teaching the girls a specific skill.

Our goal is to have a Unit available for every girl who wants to join Girl Guides of Canada. To find out more information about registering your daughter or to enquire about volunteering, contact Heather Jones at 250-949-6259 or e-mail mhcljone@telus.net.
