Hi!

Title of thread says it all really!

One of our old Brownies has started with us for her Duke of Edinburgh award. How do I add her to the unit? Can I do it, as assistant leader, or does it have to be brown owl or dc? I've tried doing it, but can't seem to find d of e option, only Brownie helper.

I thought it would be easy as I have her guiding number, but should know that GO is never that easy!!

If she's still a guide, you can add her as a Brownie helper while she does her D of E. Otherwise, your DC should be able to add her for you - if you pass on her membership number it should be easy for them. As a leader, you can only add young members (brownies or guides), whereas D of E helpers count as volunteers which is a slightly different process. :)

I have closed this thread as there is no need to post a duplicate thread. There has been a reply to your original thread. ;)

DofE Volunteers need to be added to the Unit Team by your DC. They should not be recorded as "Brownie Helpers". They can' work on their DofE and still be a Guide as DofE is part of the Senior Section programme

D of E is a separate award and organisation. If a Guide is helping weekly in a Rainbow or Brownie unit and is registered for her D of E award (which does not have to be through Guiding) then her volunteering will count as long as she is actively helping the leadership team in the way they want her too (considering the Guide's own abilities). I was a 14 year-old Guide when I started my Bronze D of E volunteering at a Rainbow unit.
