Administrative Community Leaders

We are searching for a new ACL (or a team of co-ACLs!) for your community; someone who can lead adult members and girls to fulfill our Mission to be a catalyst for girls empowering girls and to help them meet the most important person in their lives – themselves.

We need ACLs with passion, experience and commitment from diverse communities. We are actively recruiting for ACLs for communities 5, 14, 18, 22, 28, 35 and 37.

Passion – we need believers and promoters of the Vision and Mission. The new direction has been set and it is time to implement the National plan for change on a local level. You should be passionate about building a team of Community Guiders who are just as impassioned about girl empowerment as you are! Together, you will work with the Guiders in your community to ensure that the experience of girls, parents and Guiders is positive.

Experience – We know that supporting girls and Guiders requires added skills and strengths from our new ACLs:
Within GGC – You have experience in the organization and have an understanding of the existing structure (for example, as a Unit Guider).
Outside GGC – You have knowledge of your geographic community beyond Girl Guides (for example, through volunteering, family/friends or work).

Leadership – You have held a leadership and/or administrative role through employment or volunteering.

Conflict Management – You have successfully navigated challenging conversations with people to resolve conflict, inspire growth, and/or change behaviours.

Commitment – We need you to commit the time to be an active and impactful ACL. This means approximately 5-10 hours a week for a three-year term starting July 1st, 2021. You can also apply as a team of co-ACLs to share this commitment between two people! Some things this will include are: attending an ACL Forum in the spring and the fall in Toronto, being responsive to emails and phone calls within 48 hours, recruiting and placing Community Guiders effectively and participating in regular check-ins with your ACL Adviser and DPC.

Diversity – We are committed to ensuring that our ACL team reflects the richness of human diversity and the Canadian population. In addition to wide and varied skills, interests and experiences, we want a diverse ACL team with regard to race, ethnicity, age and lived experience. We want to ensure that the senior volunteers consider all of the various perspectives necessary to grow Guiding where every girl is empowered to be everything she wants to be.

What you’ll get from us:
Being an ACL right now is an opportunity to play an essential leadership role in an organization at a pivotal point in its 100+ year history. You will have the chance to encourage and empower girls and Guiders in your community during the transformation of Canada’s largest and oldest movement for girls and women as it undertakes a most profound change that will, if we get this right, have a significant impact on the lives of girls across Ontario, Nunavut and Canada. You will become a catalyst for girls empowering girls to help them meet the most important person in their lives – themselves. With girls at the center, this is an opportunity to ensure that GGC is a safe space where every girl in Ontario and Nunavut can have the voice and choice to be everything she wants to be.

Do you enjoy supporting and working with others? Are you a skilled communicator who can help resolve conflict? Can you manage a busy job effectively? Then you should consider becoming an Administrative Community Leader (ACL). There is a three year term for this position. Contact Keri Taché, Deputy Provincial Commissioner, at on-dpc2@girlguides.ca, if you have questions.
