I’m Volunteering with Brownies!

Hi everyone!

So just a short post today, buy I wanted to share something new and exciting that I’ve got involved with – volunteering with the Brownies section of Girl Guiding! Girl Guides are split into sections by age- Rainbows are ages 5-7, Brownies 7-10, Guides 10-14 And in some districts, Rangers, which are ages 14-18.

I’m training to be a Brownies Unit Leader, and was influenced by my lovely colleague who is a Guides County Commissioner. I hope to make a difference and give the girls and exciting and memorable experience with Brownies.

I had my first meeting last night, but only two girls turned up, so we think we’re going to combine with another unit of Brownies in a neighbouring village to ensure we have a sustainable group. I’ve been so worried that the girls wouldn’t like me, and I’m still worried in case they didn’t as they didn’t talk to me very much, but I’m telling myself that kids will not trust easily and they have to get to know you first, so fingers crossed they will. They were both very polite and well-behaved so that was lovely. We did have a lovely evening, which involved baking Apple Spice Muffins which were delicious! (And so perfectly Autumnal). Having never been involved in Brownies or Guides or anything growing up, I’m not very clued up on what goes on but I’m very keen to learn, and I’m finding it really interesting.

Has anyone else volunteered in the Girl Guides, Brownies or Rainbows, or something similar? Or work with children in general? Let me know in the comments, any advice would be very much appreciated!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m sorry I can’t be of any help but want to send you a big thumbs up for volunteering! I do remember how proud my friends were in Brownies, earning patches for all sorts of skills and challenges.
