You’re her hero—and ours too! Thanks to you, girls will learn to
listen to their hearts, think on their feet, and raise their voices
for what they believe in. From all of us at Girl Scouts, thank you for
sharing your time and talents as a Girl Scout volunteer!
As a Girl Scout volunteer, you are a community-builder, mentor,
champion of fun, and a role model for what it means to lead with your
heart. And because of you, Girl Scouts of all ages will have the
opportunity to discover that a little imagination can go a long way as
they chase their dreams, explore the world around them, take action to
improve their communities, and make the world a better place.
Whether you’re supporting them through their Girl Scout experience,
guiding them as they choose the way they will run their Girl Scout
Cookie business, or encouraging them as they raise their voices on
issues, they care about most, you’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and
mentor as they develop essential life skills and gain the confidence
they will rely on throughout their lives. The best part of this
experience is while you’re teaching them important life lessons and
setting them up for happy, successful lives, you’ll grow too! Because
when you embrace leadership in all forms and show girls what it means
to be resilient and strong, they learn, grow, and thrive. Before you
know it, you’ll be trying to keep up with your unstoppable troop.
Imagine the excitement, the impact, and the memories that will be
made—those are the moments you’ll enjoy as a Girl Scout volunteer.
Thank you and welcome, we’re glad you’re here!
