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. And on Saturday, April 22, the party is especially big, as we celebrate National Girl Scout Leader’s Day. Below are a few ways to show your love and appreciation. What can we say? We love our Girl Scout volunteers!
