Leaders are volunteers. They are carefully chosen women who understand and care about the needs of girls and young women and enjoy sharing their time and talents to support Guides to grow and learn.
BRAVO to our fabulous Leaders who work directly with Girl Guides supporting them in their Fun, Friends and Adventures. Leaders are able to achieve awards, badges and recognition through district, local, state, national and international events. Leaders attend Girl Guide excursions, camps, and events and receive ongoing training within their District.
Leaders come from all walks of life, families and working situations.
Leaders and Adult members are bound to a Code of Conduct and complete Child Safe training in relation to policies and procedures regarding the protection of children.
GGSA requires Adult members and Volunteers to have a National Police Certificate.
GGSA requires all Adult Leaders to attain a Australian Learning and Qualification (ALQP) Certificate.
The ALQP is provided by Girl Guides Australia (GGA) and initiates training and a pathway to Unit Leadership, Management and Training Qualifications.
It takes approximately 6-12 months to complete the ALQP. The ALQP includes physical attendance for training, online attendance for webinars and activities while volunteering with the Guides.

Trefoil Guild - open to women 18+
Once a Guide, Always a Guide
Is your time limited yet you wish to keep your link with Guiding? Then Trefoil Guild may be just right for you!
A Trefoil Guild is a self governing body and is financially self supporting. Each Trefoil Guild plans its own program, decides its own meeting times and places, and how best it can further its aims. There are opportunities to attend State and Australian Gatherings and events.
"Dual Trefoil Guild Members" are women who hold qualifications or appointments with GGSA or the Scout Association or are active Support Group/District Support Team members who have made the Guide Promise. Former members of member countries of WAGGGS now residing in Australia can also join Trefoil Guild.
Members are kept informed of activities and events through the Trefoil Guild State newsletter.
