VOLUNTEER - April 21-27 is National Volunteer Week
Only one girl in five believes she can be a leader. Our goal is to change that perspective. As a volunteer you can be a role model who helps girls reach their full potential. Get involved. Share your time & talents. Make a difference.
Girl Scout volunteer opportunities can be tailored to meet your schedule, skills and interests. As a volunteer working directly with girls you can help girls find a safe place to pursue their interests, causes and leadership roles that are most important to them.
We also have volunteer opportunities to work behind the scenes supporting the organization in our offices, properties and committees.

Volunteering for Girl Scouts can be a wonderful learning opportunity for you! We offer support and a great variety of trainings throughout the year. Register now as sessions close one week before the training date.
Are you planning on taking girls camping this spring? One adult will need to be the troop’s First Aider and another will need to be the Troop Camper. Check out our CPR/FA sessions and Troop Camping Trainings.
One great way to get information about Girl Scouts quickly is by viewing Volunteer Essentials, our adult guide to all things Girl Scouting. When planning outings and activities with girls, be sure to check the appropriate Safety Activity Checkpoint.
