Girl Scouts San Diego is privileged to partner with a dedicated group of volunteers who deliver programs and services to girls every day. The adult recognition awards honor volunteers' contributions and years of service to Girl Scouting. Volunteers do not give of their time and talent just to receive recognition. They come to Girl Scouts to work with girls, learn and grow themselves, make friends and give to the wider community. Our council promotes adult recognition as just one way to show volunteers how much they are appreciated.
