Ways to Volunteer

Prepare her for a lifetime of leadership, and be the mentor she needs.

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. They’ll each find their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ after all!

You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop essential life skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the excitement, the impact, the memories made—those are the moments you’ll share 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.

Troop Volunteers

Girl Scout troops discover something new, connect with great friends, and take action together to make the world a better place!  With the support of a Troop Leadership Team, the troop will have a blast meeting to earn badges, go on exciting adventures, help the community and so much more!  With Girl Scouts, the possibilities are endless.

To start a new troop, contact us at 1-800-666-2141 and we'll connect you with a Membership Development Specialist in your area.
