HKGGA Award for Volunteer Service
The Volunteer Movement under the Social Welfare Department will be officially retired in 2021, and the award of voluntary work certificates (gold/silver/bronze) will also cease to be issued. In order to continue to encourage our adult members and recognize their active participation in the voluntary work of Girl Guides, a certificate of service will be issued under the Hong Kong Girl Guides Association from 2021.
Adult volunteers who fulfil required volunteer service hours (such as attending any Girl Girls meetings, or activities) from September 1 to August 31 each guiding year are eligible to receive the certificate.
