Volunteer Appreciation

It’s no secret - we love our volunteers.

Girls are what we are about. Volunteers are who keep us going. As an organization, Girl Scouts relies on each and every volunteer to be out in their community, supporting girls and our mission every single day. But we know that’s not all they’re out there doing. They are gathering cookie orders, maintaining their CPR certification, assisting in community events, organizing their troops for Early Bird, and so much more.

Being a volunteer takes commitment. It takes a special kind of person who sees a need at their school or in their neighborhood and they decide to step up and make a difference. Each and every day we continue to be amazed by how hard our volunteers work and their ability to balance their Girl Scout life with their everyday activities.
