Volunteering with Girls' Brigade is a great way to use your skills and enrich lives and communities.

Whether you want to make the tea or have a skill you can share, GB Ministries needs you.

Volunteers leaders and team leaders are always needed to support the work of our local community groups working with children and young people. 

Within your GB team there will be other leaders to support and share the work. Meet your team regularly. Share your experiences, encourage one another, hold one another to account, pray together and seek to grow together e.g. as you share food and drink.

If your talents would be better suited elsewhere, we also need volunteers to support our work nationally such as helping with our communications, working in our archive, fundraising, volunteering at events, being part of a working group or project, or by becoming a trustee. We’d love to hear from you to discuss how your time and talents could be put to good use so please get in touch.

You might want also want to become an ARMS member… ARMs is Girls’ Brigade’s Associate and Retired Members Scheme. Supporting leaders, praying for girls and helping us to continue moving forward in our important mission, they are the ARMS around GB’s mission. Find out more.

Girls’ Brigade CEO, Judith Davey-Cole, has written a reflection on the changing landscape of volunteering. Read Judith’s inspiring reflection on volunteering here.

Become a GB leader

Leaders support the team leader in the planning and delivery of weekly group, and any additional, activities.

They should be over 18 years old and in sympathy with the Christian ethos of the organisation.

All our leaders will need an enhanced disclosure DBS check for working with children.

For those who take on a team leader role, extra training is required. It’s recommended that leaders attend further relevant training at least once every 5 years.
