By working around your volunteers and the skills they have to offer, you’ll strengthen leadership in your area and be able to welcome more adults into guiding. Thanks and recognition also play a key part in keeping volunteers engaged. Learn more about how you can expand and improve your local team.
We want to ensure that we reach as many girls as possible – and that they are supported by a strong network of talented and enthusiastic Leaders and volunteers. We have practical advice on recruiting more young and adult members, and guidance on promoting the benefits and successes of our organisation.
There are countless ways to recruit and retain more young members. And it doesn’t matter where you are or what budget you’re working with. From making small changes within your unit to running school taster sessions, growing guiding is all about being fun and flexible – and girls in your unit can help out too!

As a Girlguiding volunteer, you support girls to learn new skills, have incredible adventures, make friends and speak out about the issues they care about. We’re here to help you tell other members and the wider world about your work, through the media, the internet and events – so together we can empower and inspire even more girls and young women.
