How to Become a Girl Scout Volunteer

As a volunteer, you'll work with girl through a variety of ways. Whether planning or teaching fun activities, giving back to your community , or managing the operations of a Girl Scout troop. It's a totally rewarding experience that gives back as much as you give to it!

Here's how to get started:

Girls' safety is our number one priority; therefore all volunteers must be registered Girl Scout members with a Criminal Background Check on file.

Register to be a member now!

You will be asked what volunteer role you would like. Select your choice from the Opportunity Catalog during your registration. 

 

You're a stronger volunteer with training.  Be sure to take advantage of all the learning opportunities GSNEO has in store for you.

Next, go to the courses that match your volunteer role.  For example, Troop Leaders would take Troop Leader Basics and then the age level courses.  Service Unit volunteers would need only take Service Unit Volunteer courses.
