Have you got what it takes to be a leader?
Local Brownies seek someone with energy, enthusiasm and a big heart
A local Brownie group are looking for two new additions. The group, which meets meet every Monday from 6.00 - 7.30 p.m. in term time at St Peters Church Hall, Southfield Road, W4, needs two new leaders.
Nicki Murphy, who has been in Guiding and running this unit for over 30 years said "There is not a special type of person that becomes a Leader of a Brownie Unit, but one thing is for sure you benefit from working with the girls. It is very rewarding and also great fun. Despite what people think, it is a voluntary organisation!"
Many women who are adult Leaders in guiding have discovered that being a Leader gives them the opportunity to play an active role in a caring environment by helping, encouraging and promoting young people today. It also allows them to use their talents, learn new skills, develop existing skills and make new friends! Guiding today means working with girls and young women - it demands time and energy, but it's very rewarding and great fun.
Leaders are volunteers trained to help girls and young women to achieve their full potential. Any woman between her 18th and 65th birthdays can become a Leader, as long as she is willing and able to make the Guide Promise and undertake the necessary training. The only criteria set out is that you need energy, enthusiasm, a big heart - and an even bigger sense of humour.
The Brownies are girls aged from 7 to 10 years old.
