Applications to be a Girlguiding Advocate are currently open, and to help members who might be considering becoming an Advocate, Assistant Region Chief Commissioner & current Advocate panel member, Emma Dixon, is holding an information session.
Advocates are Girlguiding members from across the UK, aged 14 to 21, who speak out about issues that affect girls and young women. They work together to lead the direction of Girlguiding’s advocacy and research programme and act as national spokespeople; meeting a wide range of inspiring role models, they also get invited to amazing events and make sure that girls and young women get a say on issues affecting their lives. In their time as an advocate, girls might:
- Write blogs for our website to engage members in topics girls care about.
- Take part in television or radio interviews, speaking about Girlguiding and issues that affect girls and young women.
- Contribute to our government evidence submissions to ensure girls perspectives are included.
- Write articles or quotes for press releases and media articles.
- Speak at events with decision makers such as MPs.
