Without our volunteers, we couldn’t achieve our mission of building girls of courage, confidence, and character. The women and men who generously give their time to help develop our girls are the real superheroes and we’re so thankful for them.
As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories made—those are the moments you’ll share at Girl Scouts.
A common misconception around being a Girl Scout volunteer is the time involved. Many say they would, but their schedules are too busy. We get that completely and are here to tell you that it’s all on your schedule.
We don’t set the times of meetings or mandate how often you have to meet as a troop. In fact, you don’t even need to be a troop co-leader! That’s just the most notable way a person can get involved, but we need people to serve as troop chaperones, drives, and even subject matter experts for our events! Whatever your schedule, we have the opportunity for you.
More than just giving your time, you’re changing the lives of the girls you interact with. Whether you’re their role model, mentor, or just someone they can talk to, you can make the difference as they navigate through the challenges of adolescence.
Change her life and yours. Consider volunteering with Girl Scouts today!
The New Year rolling around is practically synonymous with resolutions. There doesn’t seem to be a better time to change your life than at the start of a brand new year filled with hope and possibility.
If you’re a resolution person, you aren’t alone. Research shows that almost 60% of people admit to making New Year’s Resolutions. Unfortunately, the best intentions only carry us so far because only 8% are successful.
In a recent survey of 2,000 people, the numbers showed that despite how different we are, we’re largely looking to improve the same areas of our life. Whether it’s being healthier, planning to be financially responsible, bettering yourself, or learning something new, we all want this year to be different.
We have a way to help you make that difference.
Being a Girl Scout is about building and empowering yourself to take on the world. It doesn’t matter if you join as a girl or volunteer – we know you’ll walk away with the experience to check off your resolutions.
We hear from leaders that because they volunteer, they’re more active. Our girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie sale, aka the largest girl-led business in the world. But it’s not just about selling delicious cookies; Girl Scouts learn about financial literacy and entrepreneurship along the way. Don’t even get us started on everything new you’ll learn as a Girl Scout.
If you really want to make a difference in your life or help shape your daughter’s life, join Girl Scouts today. For more than 100 years, we’ve been building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We are for girls, by girls, always.
Here’s to making 2019 the best year ever!
