Can parents and adults volunteer?
Absolutely! Girls always need guides and mentors to help them develop into successful adults. Whether you volunteer at meetings, go on field trips, or become a troop leader, the time you devote will help inspire today’s girls to become tomorrow’s leaders.

 

What will I do as a Girl Scout volunteer?
As part of a network of nearly one million adults, you’ll share an important commitment to preparing girls to lead successful lives. A volunteer serves as a partner and role model to girls. In the process, you’ll discover your own skills and abilities, meet new people, and "learn by doing" alongside girls.

 

What are the benefits of volunteering for Girl Scouts?
Girl Scouts really is great for everyone! Data shows it is not just girls who benefit from participating in Girl Scouts: 94 percent of volunteers have made new friends, 88 percent believe their life is better because they volunteer with Girl Scouts, and two-thirds believe their volunteer experience has helped them professionally. Also, ninety-five percent of Girl Scout volunteers are happy knowing they are making girls’ lives better.

When can I join as a volunteer?
Any day is a good day to volunteer with Girl Scouts. We’re always looking for qualified volunteers to help, whether it’s during the school year, over summer break, or any time in between. In fact, today is the perfect day to get started!

 

Is there a way to volunteer “sometimes"?
Yes! Check in with your local Girl Scout council and see what type of help they’d like. Extra adults are always needed for trips and special events, as well as for Girl Scout Cookie activities.

 

What are the most popular volunteer activities?
Volunteers help out in all kinds of ways, both large and small. From leading a troop to helping out at cookie sales, going on field trips, or lending a hand at meetings, volunteers have many opportunities to join in the fun of Girl Scouting—and make a real positive impact on girls.

 

Is there a screening process?
Yes. To ensure the safety and well-being of our girl members, all volunteers are required to complete a background check prior to becoming involved. All information you provide will be strictly confidential.

 

What about safety?
Safety is a top priority for Girl Scouts. All activities are supervised, and we provide our volunteers with top-notch training and program resources. We also follow comprehensive safety guidelines tailored to individual activities and girls' ages.
