Why-I-Volunteer

The time you invest today will inspire tomorrow's leaders!

As a Girl Scout troop leader, you'll introduce girls to new experiences that make every day feel like the best day ever. You'll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last long after the meeting is over. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories you'll make-those are the moments you'll share at Girl Scouts.

There are so many benefits to volunteering
with Girl Scouts.
  

Girl Scouts really is great for everyone! Data shows it is not just girls who benefit from participating in Girl Scouts:

You won't have to do it alone
Not only will you have a co-leader to work with, you will have an incredible networking of skilled and talented volunteers who will guide you on your Girl Scout journey, from local service unit team members to staff members who have been trained to help you get the most out of Girl Scouting.

You can choose your own schedule
Working with your co-leader, you will be able to plan your Girl Scout time around your schedules, and determine when, where and how often your troop will meet.

We are with you all the way
We're going to give you what you need to ensure that your experience is positive right from the very start.  This includes access to training, mentor support and resources such as the Volunteer Toolkit, a web app coming this fall that gives you the tools to get your year started-and keep it going smoothly! Fully customizable, you can use it on your computer, tablet or other mobile device so you can plan and prepare practically anywhere.
