Volunteer Celebration is a chance to celebrate all of the amazing
Girl Scout volunteers in San Diego and Imperial counties.
Congratulations to the volunteers who received council and national
recognitions for their above-and-beyond service to our girls, our
community, and our world! We had an amazing time at the Nov. 7, 2020
event, and we are already looking forward to celebrating with you next
What is Volunteer Celebration?
Volunteer Celebration is a Girl Scouts San Diego signature event honoring every Girl Scout volunteer in San Diego and Imperial counties with a special awards ceremony for those earning a council-level or Girl Scouts USA (GSUSA)-level award.
When is it?
Volunteer Celebration will take place on Saturday, Nov. 7.
Where will it be?
Due to COVID-19 and our duty to keep every volunteer, staff member, and all other attendees safe, we will be celebrating each of you virtually! Visit the "Navigating Remo" section for more information on the virtual platform.
Who does this event honor?
Our Volunteer Celebration is planned with every volunteer in mind! Each Girl Scouts San Diego volunteer puts her/his heart and soul into our mission-building girls of courage, confidence, and character that make the world a better place. There is a special awards ceremony for our 2020 Volunteer Celebration honorees, however. You will find the list of 2020 honorees in the “2020 Honorees” section of this page.
Who decides on honorees?
Volunteer Celebration honorees are determined months before the celebration. The process to make a volunteer an honoree begins with a nomination and two endorsements. Each honoree was nominated and endorsed by her/his peers by June 2020. These nominations then move to the Recognitions Task Group (RTG), a group of around eight Girl Scouts San Diego volunteers responsible for reading through each nomination and endorsement and comparing these to each award’s criteria and decides who has earned a council-level or GSUSA-level award.
