Ways to Volunteer

Interested in working with girls or other adults?  Volunteer as a troop leader and help girls become go-getters as they work on specific projects throughout the year. Or take an indirect role as a cookie coordinator or family volunteer as she learns innovative skills that will help her reach her goals. Coach a group of girls as they take risks on an outdoor adventure designed just for girls!  If you prefer to work with adults, you can provide the kind of behind-the-scenes support that inspires her to take the lead and share her passion with her community. There's a perfect volunteer role waiting for you!

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 girl.
