Girl Scouts exists for girls, but it exists because of volunteers. By giving your time and talent, you can make it possible for girls to build character and skills for success in the real world. Research shows the influence one caring adult has on a child will last a lifetime. No matter what your interests, age or amount of time you can offer, Girl Scouts needs your help to provide opportunities for girls to build their courage, confidence and character. We will match your interests with the needs of girls, and work around your busy schedule. Training is provided for all volunteer positions.

Adult volunteers are essential to make the Girl Scout Leadership Experience available to girls. Each adult, regardless of the position she/he holds - volunteer or paid staff, contributes to helping girls by supporting the mission “Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We recognize that by enriching our volunteers’ experience in Girl Scouting, we enrich girls’ experience.
