Introducing Lead Marketing & Communications Volunteer Steph Mlot

Date: 6th Mar 2021 Author: Scout Websites

Guide leader Steph Mlot takes on the role of co-lead volunteer for the communications and marketing team, alongside Fiona Love.

I joined Girlguiding in 2014, after moving from New York to Edinburgh. Looking for a volunteer opportunity (and a way to meet new people), I immediately found my home with the 148th Edinburgh Guides, where I’ve been part of a close-knit leadership team for more than six years.

Aside from an aversion to camping, I love everything about Guiding, especially supporting and learning from the girls. In 2018, I spearheaded the creation of our unit’s STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) badge and challenge pack—my favourite (and proudest) memory to date.

As a long-time journalist and reporter, I am keen to dig into the marketing and communications side of things. We have some exciting changes planned, but also want to hear from Girlguiding Edinburgh members, volunteers, and parents about how we can make marketing and communications work for you.

Looking forward to working with you all and supporting Girlguiding Edinburgh in any way possible!

Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. Everything from working in a team, to taking the lead, to speaking out on issues they care about. It helps them develop the skills and confidence to become the young women they want to be. ’
