Service Unit Resources

Service units are led by experienced, dedicated volunteers who support and serve girls, troops, and volunteers in their area. Service unit volunteers meet throughout the year to share ideas, receive training, and talk about important announcements. They also organize events like community-wide service projects, summer day camps, cookie rallies, recruitments, celebrations, ceremonies, and more!
