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.

Additionally, every year on April 22—Girl Scout Leader’s Day—we give extra kudos to you. Troop leaders: we love you, and we’re forever grateful to you for being the role models girls look up to, especially in challenging times like these.  Sign up for a special virtual yoga class just for Troop Leaders on April 22nd.  Register here or here depending on your time zone.  

30 Days of Gratitude: We Love Girl Scout Volunteers!

Even as we face unprecedented challenges, Girl Scout volunteers are still finding both big and small ways to show girls they care—and are doing an amazing job. Volunteers are the reason we’re feeling grateful, no matter what happens in the world around us. But it’s one thing for us to say how much we appreciate our volunteers; we want them to hear it from the people they impact the most!

We asked girls, families, and co-leaders to share why they’re grateful for their favorite volunteer—whether that’s their supportive troop leader, the cookie manager who always brings their A-game, or their service unit volunteer who comes through when you need them—and what they said melted our hearts! So throughout National Volunteer Month, we’re sharing their stories on our blog and social accounts. We’ll be updating this blog daily, so let’s keep the gratitude attitude going, even if we can’t be near one another right now.
