Irish Girl Guides has over 1,500 volunteers who take on a variety of roles in order to keep the organisation running. Most of our volunteers run weekly meetings and outings, as well as all of the planning and preparation that goes with it.
But behind the scenes there are also teams of volunteers who meet as committees and they look after training of Leaders, programme development, strategic planning, finance, communications, and lots more. It is the dedication of these amazing women that has kept IGG strong and constantly developing for over one hundred years!
Involvement on a national committee helps you to learn lots of new skills such as event planning, project management, goal setting and networking which may be useful to you in your life, career or educational goals. Support and training is given whenever needed and there are plenty of people to ask if you have questions. See our new committee member leaflet here for more info.
There is usually a 2-3 year commitment to get involved with a committee, and the amount of actual time and work involved can vary depending on the post. If you have some time to offer to IGG, or perhaps you don’t have the availability to attend weekly meetings but you would be happy to work online or attend meetings a few times a year, then we would love to hear from you!
