Volunteer Appreciation Month

Thank you for creating a supportive environment that encourages successful futures for all girls!

Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day is a day of appreciation for adult volunteers in Girl Scouting held on April 22 every year. Girl Scouts is an outstanding leadership organization for girls due to the exceptional effort put forward by our volunteers. Join us in celebrating all our wonderful adult volunteers during National Volunteer Month and as we give a special shout out to Girl Scout Leaders on Leader Appreciation Day. 

Here are a few ways you can celebrate your volunteer crew:

Informal rewards are day-to-day ways to say “thank you” to volunteers—they are intangible benefits and heartfelt displays of recognition. These sincere expressions of appreciation are based on specific contributions and are given in a timely manner. Informal recognition is powerful and effective, because volunteers feel valued by a personal touch. Examples of meaningful informal rewards include:

  • A welcome or thank-you card or letter
  • Skill-building learning opportunities (For example, how to use social media to network)
  • A recommendation for a promotion
  • Sending the volunteer’s supervisor or CEO a letter recognizing her/his contributions
  • Complimenting a volunteer’s work to a supervisor or co-worker (in the volunteer’s presence)
  • Showing interest in a volunteer’s personal life (such as asking about a volunteer’s grandchild or weekend plans)
  • A shout-out on Facebook or Twitter
