Ways to Volunteer

Be the troop leader that supports her every week—the one that watches her smile get bigger as she grows more confident. Mentor a Girl Scout Cookie Professional during cookie season so she can earn enough to reach the goals she and her troop set. Or work with other adults to provide the kind of behind-the-scenes support that makes it possible for her to make amazing new memories at Girl Scouts.

Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible and fun.

Troop Roles
 

Troop Leader

For each troop there is a team typically made up of one troop leader and one or more assistant leaders, along with other volunteers who will help the troop run as smoothly and efficiently as possible. Troop leaders work directly with a group of girls and mentor them as they make new friends and build courage, confidence and character to make the world a better place.

The troop leader is responsible for organizing and delegating the adult volunteers and overseeing troop management. They should have the enthusiasm and ability to inspire girls’ interests and curiosity, and to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life where girls will: Discover themselves, Connect with others, and Take Action to make the world a better place. You must have the ability to work as a volunteer team to achieve your troop goals, and along the way, you will be inspiring girls to be the best they can be! However, the troop leader shouldn’t be responsible for everything in the troop. We encourage troop leaders to view themselves as chief communicator and coordinator, allowing other troop volunteers the opportunity to participate in running troop activities.
