Be a Volunteer

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined.

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 made–those are the moments you’ll share at Girl Scouts.

Be the role model she’ll always remember.
