Volunteer with Girl Scouts!

Be someone they’ll look up to. Be a Girl Scout volunteer! 

To be a Girl Scout volunteer is to be a changemaker. Through giving supportive pep talks that inspire girls to aim for the stars, engaging them in activities that ignite their passions, or simply turning frowns into smiles, your mentorship and support helps girls grow into women who advocate for positive change in the world. 

But that’s not all you’ll do! As a volunteer, you will:
  • Be a role model 
  • Discover your own leadership style as your girls discover theirs
  • Expand your network as you partner with your girls, their families, and your community
  • Build new skills as you take on exciting activities with your girls

With the guidance and support of their volunteers, Girl Scouts can go as far as their imaginations will take them—and you can be there, right by their side. Are you ready to start your volunteer adventure?
