If you have a skill, a spark, or just dreams of helping girls, there is a place for your volunteer spirit in Girl Scouting. Whether you have a lot of time or just a little, you can make a difference in the lives of girls.
You need not be a parent of a registered Girl Scout to volunteer. If you’re an adult (man or woman) aged 18 or older, you can extend the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls, either directly or indirectly.
- Direct volunteers provide direct service to girls in a variety of volunteer positions (e.g., leaders, advisors, event chaperones, drivers).
- Indirect volunteers support girls “behind the scenes” as strategic thinkers, administrators, or project-based volunteers (e.g., board members, school organizers, treasures, trainers).
- A volunteer could fill a formal role that includes an appointment process (troop leader, trainer, board members, service team member) or an informal role that relies on a verbal agreement to serve in a direct or indirect role with girls (parent helper in a group, driver, troop cookie manger, event helper).
