Why Volunteer

Become a Volunteer

Prepare her for a lifetime of leadership, and be the mentor she needs.

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. They’ll each find their inner G.I.R.L. ( Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ after all!

You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop essential life skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the excitement, the impact, the memories made—those are the moments you’ll share at Girl Scouts.

Embark on an extraordinary journey of Leadership!
