Would you like to volunteer with a troop, a group of girls who meets regularly to learn skills, earn badges, celebrate traditions, and serve the community? A troop position is a great fit for a person who is looking to volunteer directly with a group of girls, can coordinate regular meetings with parents and families, and can commit to working with a Girl Scout troop on a regular basis, for six weeks to 12 months. Are you organized, energetic, and ready to help girls develop as leaders? Click here for more details.
• Troop Helpers serve as drivers or an extra set of hands as needed.
• The time, place, and frequency of troop meetings is up to the volunteers and parents.
• Troops may meet for a short period of 6-8 weeks, during the entire school year, or for an entire year.
If you think volunteering for Girl Scouts is a full-year commitment, think again! If you would like to get involved, but you’re unsure about your schedule or the best fit for you, we’ve got short-term, occasional, or one-time opportunities to lend a hand. You might find yourself checking in participants at a special event or sorting cookies at a Cookie Cupboard. Contact your closest regional office for the latest opportunities.
