Troop volunteers work together to provide a quality Girl Scout Leadership Experience for girls through service to the girls assigned to their troop. The team structure allows each volunteer to maximize his or her skills as they pertain to troop leadership. Read more about leading a troop with a team.
Ways to Volunteer
Be the troop leader that supports her every week—the one that watches her smile get bigger as she grows more confident. Mentor a Cookie Professional during Girl Scout cookie season so she can earn enough to reach the goals she and her troop set. Or work with other adults to provide the kind of behind-the-scenes support that makes it possible for her to make amazing new memories at Girl Scouts.
Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible and fun.
Service Unit Team Volunteers
Service units are teams of volunteers who work together to provide a quality Girl Scout Leadership Experience for the girls in their community through events and other activities.
Advisory volunteers work with council staff to provide development and guidance for volunteers and girls, as well as make recommendations on operational decisions. These volunteers provide a quality Girl Scout Leadership Experience for girls through service in an advisory capacity.
School Captain Volunteers
School captains work with school administrators at their assigned school to facilitate the Girl Scout movement in the school and ensure a positive experience for everyone involved.
Episodic volunteers help with events and other activities occasionally. Episodic volunteers may help with one event a year, a monthly activity, or at other times that extra help is needed and the volunteer is available.
Outdoor Volunteers coordinate with council staff and work with girls and/or adults in the Outdoor Pathway. Volunteers can serve as Camp Master, trainer, summer camp volunteer, outdoor trip chaperones and help with special events at camp.
