Girl Scout Volunteer Recognition Week is April 18-23 and we would like to say a big THANK YOU to all of GSSoAZ volunteers.
No matter how you’re involved- on an ongoing basis as a troop leader, taking girls on a weekend travel trip, sharing your skills- Girl Scout volunteers are part of a family of more than 1 million Girl Scout volunteers who make a positive and lasting impact on the lives of young girls.
Leader’s Day on April 22nd is a special day that honors all the volunteers who work as leaders and mentors in partnership with girls. Girls, their families, and communities should find a special way to thank their adult Girl Scout volunteers and let them know they are appreciated. The gesture doesn’t have to be big- it can be as simple as a letter signed by you! Remember, it’s the thought that counts!
