Building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

 Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Photo.jpgGirl Scout volunteers come from all walks of life. Some are stay-at-home or working moms and dads who want more quality time with their daughters. Many are grandparents or retirees. Others are professional women or college students who may not have daughters, yet know the value of the Girl Scout experience.

You can volunteer to assist different Girl Scout Pathways, such as:

Event Pathway
Recruit recent alumni or college students to help on a Service Unit event committee.  These young people like to volunteer, but may not have time every week.  They could help you plan your Service Unit events and then be there at the event to work it.

Camp Pathway
Recruit volunteers to help at your Service Unit summer day camp or help plan a Service Unit camporee

Travel Pathway
Recruit a volunteer from a travel agency to help plan a trip for older girls in your Service Unit
 
Special Interest
Recruit a college student that is on the dance team or cheer squad to help plan a series of event for the girls in your Service Unit that are interested in those sports.  What about a female black-belt or female police officer to lead a series of self defense classes for girls in the community and our girls?
