  • Recognizing Volunteers

    Thank you!

    You're appreciated! On May 5, GSEM honored 81 volunteers, four service units and two committees with formal Girl Scouts of the USA and Girl Scouts of Eastern Massachusetts recognitions. We honored remarkable role models at a dinner celebration; see the latest here as we profile several honorees at a time:

    President's Award
    This award recognizes exemplary service in delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience and surpassing team goals, positively impacting GSEM.

    Concord/Carlise Service Unit
    This team built a sense of community out of their love for Girl Scouting and girls in the program. These remarkable volunteers work to achieve their goals, and have become a model for other service units.

    Gold Award Committee
    The committee works with each and every girl - of any ability level - who submits a Gold Award proposal, and encourages each to pursue and complete her project to attain the dream of being a Gold Awardee.

    Holliston Service Unit
    Holliston Girl Scouts boast innovative service unit events. Most incorporate not only a learning component for girls, but also a philanthropic element that helps girls give back to their town.

    Marlborough Service Unit
    United Way of Tri-County recognized the Marlborough Girl Scouts with the “Good Neighbor Award” for their community service efforts. They build great partnerships with organizations and businesses to provide outstanding service.

    Wayland Service Unit
    The service unit team is the perfect balance of fresh perspective and experience, and they work to ensure girls have an experience that is front and center to the entire community.
