Make Volunteering your New Years Resolution

New Year, New You?

If you’re looking for a challenge, make new friends or get involved in your community, volunteering with Girlguiding could be for you!

You don’t have to be a group leader (we need support from lots of different people) and it doesn’t need to be once a week, you could volunteer to help at events, to help with sharing skills with groups or even helping check accounts. Whatever time you are willing to donate to Girlguiding, any group would be very grateful of your time.

You can find out about the roles on offer here.

Why volunteer?

1. It’s good for you.

Volunteering provides physical and mental rewards. It:

  • Reduces stress: Experts report that when you focus on someone other than yourself, it interrupts usual tension-producing patterns.
  • Makes you healthier: Moods and emotions, like optimism, joy, and control over one’s fate, strengthen the immune system.

2. It brings people together.

As a volunteer you assist in:

  • Uniting people from diverse backgrounds to work toward a common goal
  • Building camaraderie and teamwork

3. You learn a lot.

Volunteers learn things like these:

  • Self: Volunteers discover hidden talents that may change your view on your self worth.
  • Community: Volunteers gain knowledge of local resources available to solve community needs.

4. You get a chance to give back.

People like to support community resources that they use themselves or that benefit people they care about.

5. You make a difference.

Every person counts!
