Representing guiding externally

You may be asked to represent Girlguiding at an event in the wider community. This is a great opportunity to promote guiding in the local area, and can potentially be used as a recruitment opportunity for adult volunteers.

When visiting an event, consider the following to help you prepare and remember that you will be acting as an ambassador for guiding.

Do not be afraid to approach organisations about guiding members attending events. Keep an eye on the local calendar, noting down any events that need volunteers to help. These can be ideal opportunities and very often you will be allowed to bring recruitment materials.
