Ways to Volunteer

Whether you have a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months to give, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible, fun, and meaningful! Be the troop leader that supports her every week, an advocate for girls in your community, a mentor in your area of expertise, or provide behind-the-scenes support that makes Girl Scouting possible.

Already a volunteer? You've come to the right place! Find resources for troop leaders, service unit volunters, general training opportunities and more.

Are you a parent interested in joining Girl Scouts? Sign up to volunteer with her troop by logging into your MyGS account and register as an adult member.
