Girl Guides Association of Barbados
The Girl Guides Association of Barbados is a not for profit organisation, which is recently celebrated its Centennial Anniversary. Our mission is “to empower our girls and young women to become effective and responsible citizens of our nation and the world.” In accordance with this, we continuously mould the characters of our girls and young women, enabling them to develop leadership skills for roles in the local, regional and international association, as well as in their personal and professional lives. Our programmes are wide and varied, but are all intended to teach our girls and young women the skills and values that are necessary to be successful and thrive in this dynamic, modern and ever-changing world.
Some of our current educational and advocacy projects are Biodiversity and Food and Water Scarcity, HIV/AIDS education, Free Being Me, Voices against Violence, Surf Smart and a myriad of other environmental protection issues. Through the Girl Guide motto “Be Prepared” and the Brownie Guide Motto “Lend a Hand” our girls and young women seek to continue to positively respond to the challenges of their time.
As our charges learn through non-formal, experiential educational methods in their Units and gain interest badges and awards, we emphasise the need to get involved in and make a difference in not just their communities, but the country as a whole. Of course, all this is done in a fun, friendly and welcoming environment that encourages them to give of their best and to push to reach their fullest potential!
We would require the volunteers to:
- Work along with Unit Guiders in the running of Units at the Blossom Guide (4-7), Brownie Guide (7-11) and Girl Guide (11-17) levels.
- Project, Activity and Event Management
- General Administrative
- Social Media
- Website Development and Maintenance
- Updating historical records and archiving
Please note that we are a FEMALE ONLY organisation which caters to girls and young women, and to this end we would request that we only be assigned female volunteers.
