Volunteer

Help Girl Scouts dream big.

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.

You’ll help her reach her potential while achieving your own.

You can grow by being a Girl Scout volunteer:

  • Experience the confidence that comes with being a role model.
  • Discover your leadership style as your girls discover theirs.
  • Meet new people and make friends in your community.
  • Build new skills and have fun during the activities with your girls.

Girls are ready to go, and they can’t do it without you! Sign up to become a Girl Scout volunteer today.

Volunteer FAQs

Who can be a Girl Scout volunteer?

Girls always need guides and mentors to help them develop into successful adults. Whether you’re a recent college grad, a parent, a retiree, or anyone with a sense of curiosity and adventure, your unique skills and experience are what make Girl Scouting a powerful leadership experience for girls.

What are the most popular volunteer opporunities?

Volunteers help out in all kinds of ways, both large and small. Whether leading a troop, helping out at a cookie booth, or going on field trips, volunteers have many opportunities to join in the fun of Girl Scouting—and make a real, positive impact on girls.

Is there a way to "sometimes" volunteer?

If you don’t have time to commit to a recurring volunteer role, you can still influence the success of the next generation of women leaders. Become a mentor or guest speaker, plan a field-trip opportunity, or support a Girl Scout event. Submit an interest form to let us know more about you. 

Is there a screening process?

Yes. To ensure the safety and well-being of our girl members, all volunteers are required to complete a background check prior to becoming involved. All information you provide will be strictly confidential.

What about safety?

Safety is a top priority for Girl Scouts. All activities are supervised, and we provide our volunteers with top-notch training and program resources. We also follow comprehensive safety guidelines tailored to individual activities and girls' ages.
