Hawkesbury Girl Guides are on the look out for volunteer leaders to help young girls and women grow and develop into confident community members.

Girl Guide leaders will be offered training to provide a dynamic education program in life skills, decision making and leadership, as well as more traditional Guide activities.

Acting regional manager, Kerrie Williams encourages people to take on the role which is a life changing experience. 

‘‘As well as giving back to the community, I’ve made long lasting friends, travelled around the world and changed many lives with the knowledge I’ve shared throughout my 12 years of leading,’’ Mrs Williams said.

‘‘We encourage girls to challenge themselves and learn new skills to become confident leaders.

‘‘Watching them grow is the most rewarding part.’’ 

More than 30,000 girls and women in Australia are part of the not-for-profit organisation that has branches in 145 countries.

Susan Mork, a guide leader, said she loves the values that Guides represent and enjoys being part of the community.

‘‘They focus on many values that are being lost today such as the outdoors, being caring to others and helping the environment,’’ Mrs Mork said. 

There are units based in Kurrajong, North Richmond, Richmond and Windsor.

Positions are available for girls to become members, women to become leaders and for people to help in the support groups.
