Something to Think About
What is your passion? Do you have a particular skill or talent? Do you
prefer working with girls, or would you rather work with other adults?
Howmuch time can you give? Answering these questions can lead to
fulfilling and rewarding experiences as a volunteer—and we would love
to have you!
Direct Service Volunteers
Women andmen who work directly with our girl members
Troop volunteers meet with girls on a regular basis for one year
or more to guide them in the Discover, Connect and Take Action
principles. Earning awards, visiting area businesses and attractions,
setting goals, participating in the entrepreneurial programs and
completing Take Action projects are all a part of leading girls through
the troop pathway and to success as they grow.
Series, event, camp, and travel volunteers take on a short-term role
based on their desire to guide girls in various skills or topics. Their
work with girls can includemany of the same components as a troop
volunteer but with a shorter time commitment. These volunteers can
sign on for one or many of the pathway opportunities.
Indirect Service Volunteers
Women andmen who play supporting roles in Girl Scouts
Volunteers serving in a supporting role include the Board of Directors
and various committees of the board. They work behind the scenes
to set policy, bylaws, provide financial oversight for the council, and
establish long-range plans.
Other indirect service volunteers include: learning facilitators,
interviewers; planning committees, recruitment/troop organizers,
properties maintenance and general clerical/office support.
The strength of Girl Scouting rests on the shoulders of adult
volunteers who are committed to encouraging today’s girls to
become tomorrow’s leaders. For more information on specific
