AWARDS & RECOGNITION
Sometimes we take for granted just what our adult and youth members accomplish as Girl Guide volunteers. Our members are creating challenging, rewarding, and inspirational programs for girls of all ages. How do we show these women that their talents and dedication are valued and appreciated?
Fortunately, we have a special way to tell these women and girls just how much they mean to us! Consider presenting a Girl Guides of Canada award to one of your fellow volunteers. You can show that you noticed her amazing contributions with many types of awards—whether she is a Unit Guider who goes that extra mile or an organizer of district/area activities.
Most awards require an application form and one or more letters of support. The letters are a treasured keepsake for the award recipient. Many tips are available from the Provincial Awards website for preparing these heart-felt messages. You can also download a Word template from this page.
Let us recognize our volunteers!
