There are many volunteering opportunities within Girls Friendly Society. Some roles work directly with girls and young women, and some are ‘behind the scenes’ roles working in one of our offices or from home.

This page lists all the urgent volunteer vacancies we need to fill to help our groups succeed. Typically, these vacancies arise because the number of girls and young women in a group has increased and outgrown the current volunteers’ capacity, a new group has just launched or previous volunteers have retired.

If a role you’re interested in isn’t here, don’t worry, you can still let us know your volunteering interests by filling in our volunteer enquiry form and we’ll get back to you. Make sure to take a look at the volunteer role descriptions below to decide the right fit for you.
