VOLUNTEER WITH US!
Working with young people and other volunteers helps develop valuable, transferable skills like event planning, time management, leadership skills and budgeting!
We help all girls know they can do anything. We open up a world of possibilities to girls – one where they can do anything. Every girl can laugh and learn and be herself.
There is something for everyone!
In Girlguiding NYS there is something for everyone whatever their age or ability. We want to help the girls and young women of NYS become their own person, to learn to make their own decisions; discover their true potential and achieve far more than they ever expected.
Volunteering with us isn’t just about campfires and helping girls to get their next badge – although those are special moments that we all share. It’s about providing a space where she’ll make special friends and do the things she never though she could. It’s being a role model and helping girls be themselves, get creative and explore. Most of all, it’s about having fun whilst sharing and developing your skills.
