‘Working with the girls each week is a real pleasure. Knowing they’re having fun and enjoying themselves and seeing them grow up, both physically and spiritually, makes all the hard work and effort worthwhile,’ says Jane Smith, Team Leader/Captain of 1st Dagenham group.
GB is delivered by volunteers and thousands of adults across the country are involved in its work.
‘Whether you want to make the tea or have a skill you could share, GB needs you,’ says Jules Murdy, Director.
‘Volunteers are always needed to support the work of our local groups working with children and young people, but also to help at one-off national events, working groups and projects.
‘Or you may also be interested in being part of the national leadership of GB through our trustee scheme.’
Volunteering has recently been highlighted as part of the launch of Step Up To Serve, in November 2013, with the help of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. As GB provides opportunities for young people to take part in social action.
The Prince has also recently became Patron of Youth United. The network of uniformed organisations is made up of members including Girls' Brigade, Boys' Brigade, the Army Cadets, Air Cadets, Fire Cadets, St John Ambulance, Voluntary Police Cadets, Sea Cadets, Scouts and Girl Guiding UK.
So, if you’re thinking about getting involved at your local group providing fantastic opportunities for young people, why not give the GB team a call on 01246 582322 to find out more?
You may also want to check out our volunteering opportunities at events or take a look at our free leader’s resources or, if you want to know more about setting up a new GB group, then call or email Hannah Field.
