We’re looking for Mentors and Activity Facilitators that help make Girls on Fire possible.
Mentor / Activity Facilitator
Mentors and Activity Facilitators are a combined role for the Brewarrina camp.
Mentors and Activity Facilitators support and manage small groups of participants throughout each event. Mentors and Activity Facilitators work together to deliver learning activities undertaking during day sessions at the camp.
Learning sessions teach particular skills related to the key functions your agency such as urban firefighting, rural firefighting, land management and community resillience.
Mentors and Activity Facilitators will work with other agencies and adapt skills, techniques and processes to provide generalised instruction.
All accommodation, meals, induction training and camp costs will be covered.
The Girls on Fire Experience intends to give girls and young women insight into and understanding of the fire and emergency services industry, and to ignite pathways as a volunteer or as a career in firefighting and the emergency services.
Mentors and Activity Facilitators model inclusive leadership and commit to working collaboratively to enable interoperability between agencies, and ensure safe team and working practices through camp rules, process and schedule.
Mentors and Activity Facilitators help build leadership capacity in their fellow volunteers, and educate and engage with the community about the role of fire and emergency services and their role in emergency management.
