MV Case Study: Rebekah Mann, Girl Guiding Shetland.

“I joined the Brownies at the age of 7; and went on to be a Guide once I was 10.   At 14, I became a Young Leader, and joined the Senior Section of Girl Guiding.  I have really enjoyed volunteering as a Young Leader with the guides because I enjoyed it as a child too.  I just love seeing and helping other children experience the fun that I had when I was their age and in Guiding.  I also love being able to go away with the girls and take part in new and exciting activities with them which is all part of the Girl Guiding Experience.”

Ingrid Gallacher (supervisor) says: “Rebekah assists both the Brownie Leader and Guide Leader.  She comes along for the weekly meetings, and is included in any training events and camping trips: both joining in the activities and helping the leaders at the same time.  Recent training has included Equality and Diversity in the Development of Guiding in the UK today and new crafts, games and activities.   The opportunity to go to the mainland, to take part in trips and events, or even abroad, is offered to all Senior Section.  Support, both financial and organisational, is offered to Young Leaders in all their activities.”
