About this Event

Ever thought about volunteering at a World Centre? Volunteering at a World Centre is an amazing and life-changing experience, but it can seem like a big reach. Join this session to turn your thoughts into reality and learn more about skills you need to become a great World Centre Volunteer! We will teach you how to write a good application and how best to raise money for your trip. You will also hear first-hand from previous volunteers about their amazing experiences and their top tips. You are sure to leave this session ready to join our World Centre volunteer teams!  

Session length: 90 -120 mins 

Age: 16+

We will be selling a World Centres Virtual Programmes badge, which will be available to all those who join an online virtual event with us. The link for purchase will be available in the email communication after your event.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation from the World Centre who ran the event after attending!

Minimum numbers:

Important note: This session requires a minimum of 10 participants (excluding free leader places) to run. If there are fewer than 10 participants booked 24 hours before the start time the session will be cancelled and a refund provided.

Age requirements:

Individuals aged 16+ who are not attending with a Unit/Troop may book themselves onto a session and do not need an adult to attend with them.

Private events:

We understand some Units/Troops would like a private session just for their group, and during 2020 some World Centres were able to offer these sessions. However, due to limited resources and staffing at the World Centres during 2021, we have created fixed dates and times so that we can ensure the Centres can reach as many people as possible. This does mean that we are unable to offer sessions outside of those advertised on Eventbrite.

If you would like to guarantee a session will be attended only by your Unit/Troop, you can book all the tickets for that session. We do encourage attendees of free events not to block tickets which may not be used.

Other important information:

Sessions are delivered in English unless otherwise stated. We are working on having sessions delivered in other languages in the future.

Please note this event is only for members associated with a Girl Guide/Girl Scout Organisation – this includes but not limited to Youth and Adult Members (please check the age guideline for each event), Unit/Troop Helpers, Membership Organisation Volunteers, and youth Parents/Guardians.
