Volunteer Opportunities

Provincial Volunteer Opportunities

A provincial volunteer works closer with the adults than the girls, contributing to the administrative side of our organization. They have the opportunity to influence the direction of the Girl Guide movement in British Columbia by sharing their knowledge and experience. It’s a rewarding and exciting opportunity for the volunteers who join the provincial level of the Girl Guides of Canada-Guides du Canada (GGC).

SOAR 2020 Responsible Guider and Site Proposal Applications

We are excited to let you know that we are beginning the application process for two very important aspects of SOAR 2020!

SOAR 2020 Responsible Guider:
First, we are pleased to share with you the SOAR 2020 Responsible Guider (RG) application form. If you, or someone you know, would be interested in this position, please be encouraged to apply. The application deadline is June 15, 2018, after which time there will be a selections process led by the PC Team, with a vote held by BC Council in September. We will also be seeking Responsible Guiders-in-training (at a later date) who will learn what is required in order to run an event of this magnitude and who will be mentored by the selected RGs for potential future leadership opportunities at SOAR, or other large events, in the future.

SOAR 2020 Site Proposal:
Second, we are further pleased to share with you the SOAR 2020 site proposal information. Areas are encouraged to consider communities that would be suitable to hold the next SOAR event and are asked to complete the site proposal by September 4, 2018. Once the site proposals are received, a selections process will be initiated by the PC Team and a vote will be held by BC Council to approve the final location in September.

We hope you share in our enthusiasm for SOAR 2020 preparations to get underway and hope to hear from many of you soon with RG and site proposal applications.
