It's Volunteer Appreciation Month!

Thank you, Girl Scout volunteers! Every day, our adult members bring girls experiences filled with fun, friendship and discovery.

These incredible — and essential — volunteers give their time to mentor girls, inspire them, and help them discover the world around them and the spark inside them.

April is Volunteer Appreciation Month. Below are a few ways to show your love. What can we say? Our Girl Scout volunteers are simply the best!
