A Note of Thanks from GSUSA CEO Bonnie Barczykowski to Girl Scout Volunteers

Check out the new blog post from GSUSA CEO Bonnie Barczykowski!

Thank you to our amazing Girl Scout volunteers!

Keeping up with girls’ ever-changing needs isn’t always easy, but because of you, we’ve got this!

Today’s girls need inspiration. They need role models and mentors. They need a sounding board for their innovative ideas and the knowledge that they’ll have help bouncing back if their plans don’t work out.

Girl Scouts is able to give them all this and more, thanks to the incredible efforts of our volunteers.

While April is officially National Volunteer Month, we are honored and grateful to have you representing the Movement every single day. This month, please use the code Thankyou23 to take $10 off your membership for the 2023 – 2024 Girl Scout year.


Win amazing prizes!

Mark your calendar for USAGSO’s Volunteer Appreciation Week celebration.  Starting April 16 we’ll spend the entire week celebrating you, our volunteers, in the USAGSO Volunteer Facebook group.  Join us for fun virtual games, prizes, and a lot of Girl Scout fun.   


Families and Girl Scouts, share the love!

For all of April, show your favorite Girl Scout volunteers, like your troop leader or your Overseas Committee Chair, how much they mean to you. Even if you can’t see them in person right now, here are a few ways to show you care:

  • Call or video chat with them!
  • Personalize one of our super cute and free thank-you cards.  (PDF)
  • Celebrate your volunteer with a gift from USAGSO Girl Scout World – use our volunteer appreciation gift guide for inspiration.
  • Nominate someone for a Volunteer Award.
  • Bake a special treat to brighten their day.
  • Give them a glow-up with a special social media post.
  • Send a short video thanking them for all they’ve helped your troop accomplish.
  • Submit a success story for our USAGSO publication or your local newspaper or base/embassy newsletter.
  • Donate to USA Girl Scouts Overseas in their name.
