Change-makers. Trailblazers. Explorers. We’re talking about Girl Scouts, of course, but we’re also talking about the people who become Girl Scout volunteers.
Just like the Girl Scouts they guide, volunteers lead with their hearts and bring a playful sense of curiosity to everything they do. Whatever their unique skills or interests, volunteers help Girl Scouts unlock their limitless potential and make a lasting difference in the world.
See for yourself how empowering it is to be a role model. Look for Girl Scout volunteer opportunities near you—whether you’re looking for short-term opportunities or to start a troop of your own, connect with your local Girl Scout council and start making an impact.
If you’re ready to deeply engage with your community, grow your skills, and show Girl Scouts what it means to be unstoppable—you’re ready to be a troop or service unit volunteer.
Troop volunteers help Girl Scouts become stronger, kinder, and braver than they ever thought possible. Troop leaders—and volunteers in other roles, like troop money manager or cookie chair—engage regularly with their Girl Scouts and guide them through activities, like earning badges, exploring the outdoors, or running their own business through the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
Service unit volunteers are the network of support throughout your community. They empower troop leaders and troop volunteers to be the role models that Girl Scouts need and connect them with the resources for unforgettable troop experiences.
If you want to get a snapshot of troop life, you can find short-term volunteer opportunities—both in-person and virtual—and support local Girl Scouts as they pursue their passions.
The best part? There’s no one “type” of volunteer. If you believe that Girl Scouts can change the world, you belong here. Find your local council and see how you can make the most impact.
