Become a Volunteer

Guiding is an opportunity – it gives you the chance as an adult to help the next generation to learn to live and grow into adults equipped to cope with the joys, the anxieties, the fears and the demands of life. Guiding encourages the best in us as it gives us the opportunity to discover new ideas, new skills, new experiences and new friendships.

You will find that the friendships you form with other Leaders and your relationship with the girls will enrich your life and help with your own personal development. Guiding will also provide you with important lifeskills that are transferable to other aspects of your life such as career, travel, studies, family and friendships.

There is a place for everyone in IGG and there are many different roles that you can take up that suit your availability and your skill set.

Regular donations help us to better plan for the future. Donations of more than €250 in one calendar year are eligible for tax relief. €250 is actually worth €362 to the Irish Girl Guides – at no extra cost to you.

Every year IGG benefits from donations that people have made in their will. Leaving a gift to the Irish Girl Guides in this way is a lovely way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime and helps to ensure the organisation you value today will continue to make a difference tomorrow. Your gift can be as general or specific as you like. IGG will fully honour your wishes and donors can remain anonymous if they so wish. Any bequests you make in your will to a registered charity are exempt from Gift or Inheritance Tax.
