Think back to when you were a kid. Remember the people who really listened to you, who inspired you, and who helped support you through it all?
When you volunteer with Girl Scouts, you are one of those people.
Together, you and your troop will try new things, help your community, build each other up, and make unforgettable memories. Through fun, laughter, and connection, you’ll create a safe space where girls are celebrated for being themselves.
This year, be a role model and mentor just by being yourself! You don’t need to have a child of your own to get involved—you just need to be passionate about helping others. Your local council can help get you started.
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.
