Volunteers are essential to the success of Girl Scouts!
Have you ever thought about how your skills and knowledge could be passed on to girls? We have a place for you!
Every girl has the ability to lead. But only one girl in five believes she can. A lack of role models, unhealthy images of beauty, peer pressure to not stand out, and a mean-girl culture are just some of the obstacles that stand between girls and their full potential. But now that you’re here, girls are one step closer to breaking down those barriers.
Volunteering opportunities with Girl Scouts are tailored to fit your calendar, your skills, and your interests. Your time as a volunteer will provide girls the free and safe environment they need to pursue whatever interests, causes, and leadership roles are most important to them. With your support, girls will stand up, stand out, and stand tall.
Explore what being a volunteer could mean for you. We know what it means for girls. We will work with you to find the perfect volunteer position and will help provide the tools and training you will need to impact girls in your community.

Our primary concern is always the safety and well-being of the girls we serve. In fact, the physical, emotional, and social well-being of girls is woven throughout everything we do. Girl Scout councils have clear policies regarding volunteer requirements and screening practices designed to protect girls. We have stringent practices in place that may include criminal background checks, adult-to-girl ratio requirements, guidelines regarding where activities take place, and training materials outlining safety measures we expect our volunteers to observe.
