Volunteer Appreciation

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.

We celebrated several standout volunteers at our 2016 Volunteer Conference and Celebration! These dedicated adults were nominated by their peers for awards that recognize the extraordinary time and effort they’ve put into supporting and leading girls.
