As a volunteer, you'll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they're capable of more than they ever imagined.  Whether you can give a day, a few weeks, or the whole year, it all starts with you.  Whatever amount of time you can give, it means more girls benefit.  Be the role model she'll always remember.  You do not have to have a daughter in Girl Scouts or become a Troop Leader to participate.  Everyone has something to offer to Girl Scouting.  Short-term or on-going, working directly with girls or behind the scenes, with a Troop or at the administrative level – many opportunities are available.

 

Here are some of the rewards of volunteering with Girl Scouts:

  • You can feel good about making a difference in girls’ lives.

  • You can enhance your skills.

  • You receive training, resources, and support services.

  • Your work can be noted on your professional resume.

  • You can share a talent or interest with others.

  • You can develop new skills you’ve always wanted to learn.

  • You help girls grow courageous and strong!
