Why Volunteer

Be the role model she'll always remember.

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. With your guidance and support, Girl Scouts can go as far as their imaginations will take them—and you can be there, right by their side.

You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories made—those are the moments you’ll share at Girl Scouts.

When you volunteer, you will help girls:

  • Discover a world full of fun experiences and new activities
  • Build confidence and make a whole bunch of new friends
  • Explore interests and learn new skills in a safe, all-girl environment

Check out what caregivers and volunteers have to say, according to our research, about volunteering with Girl Scouts:

  • Ninety-five percent of volunteers say they make girls’ lives better at Girl Scouts (and that makes them happy).
  • Eighty-eight percent of Girl Scout volunteers say their volunteer experience with us makes their life better.
  • Two-thirds of volunteers say Girl Scouts has helped them professionally.

What GSCCC's Volunteers have to say...

“I love volunteering for Girl Scouts because I feel so strongly about the program. Girl Scouts is by far the best youth organization designed specifically for girls, teaching them the values and skills they need to reach their highest potential in life. I am a better person because I was a Girl Scout, and I have witnessed many girls grow into amazing young women because of their time in Girl Scouts.”

 – Holly Nishida

“I have seen over the years how Girl Scouts has made a difference in so many girl’s lives. I truly believe that if their leader is dedicated and uses the GSUSA program to its’ full potential, it can really help girls develop into their very best selves! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?”

– Lisa McKinny

“There are so many things that make volunteering worth my time. I enjoy being able to teach girls new things that I love doing myself! Everyone should volunteer because it gives you the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience with younger girls who will grow and learn from you. They look up to you. To me, that is all I need to keep volunteering.”

– Julie Sainz

“Volunteering is worth my time because of the smiles of accomplishment on our girls’ faces and the memories they make as a troop. Others should volunteer because the need is great, and the rewards are too! It’s all for the girls, they are an amazing group. All of the time and effort put in by myself and our coleaders is worth every minute.”
