A volunteer serves as a guide as a girl discovers her values, a support as she connects with the world and a believer as she takes action to make a difference. Girl Scout volunteers are a part of a special organization – one that changes the lives of girls forever. Volunteers contribute thousands of service hours each year, and the Girl Scout organization would not exist without them!
As a Girl Scout volunteer, you have the wonderful opportunity to awaken in girls their personal leadership abilities and help develop them to their full potential. Research shows the influence one caring adult has on a child will last a lifetime. No matter what your interests, age or amount of time you can offer, Girl Scouts needs your help to provide opportunities for girls to grow into independent women.
No experience is necessary to volunteer – training is provided for all volunteer positions.
For example, you can choose to:
Work directly with girls in a variety of settings
- Be a leader/advisor to girls or offer to help a leader/advisor
- Design and/or facilitate a program or event for girls
- Share a skill, career or special interest with girls
Reach out to the community
