Troop Volunteer Roles

Whether you’re a planner, an organizer, a camper, a money manager, or a cookie enthusiast, you can use your interests and availability to help build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place.

Not only will you be making a difference in the lives of girls, but they’re sure to return the favor! Ninety-five percent of volunteers say they make girls’ lives better at Girl Scouts (and that makes them happy!). Eighty-eight percent of our volunteers say their volunteer experience with us makes their life better.

Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible, fun, and makes an incredible impact on the life of every G. I. R. L.

Don’t worry you are not alone! GSCCC Volunteer Support staff will help you every step of the way. Not only to you have the council staff support, but you will also have access to some incredibly helpful online tools to help you navigate your Girl Scout volunteer journey!
