Ways to Volunteer

Be the troop leader that supports her every week—the one that watches her smile get bigger as she takes initiave and becomes a go-getter. Mentor a Girl Scout Cookie Professional during cookie season so she can innovate creative ways to reach her goals. Coach a troop of girls as they take risks and get out of their comfort zone on a challenge course. Or work with other adults to provide the kind of behind-the-scenes support that inspires her to take the lead and share her passion with her community.

Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible, fun, and makes an incredible impact on the life of every G.I.R.L.
