Ways to Volunteer
Be the troop leader who supports her every week—the one who 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 (and we offer all of the training and resources you need to be successful)!
In order to ensure that volunteering with Girl Scouts is safe, supportive, and fun for everyone, all volunteers complete a background check and are covered under GSSOAZ insurance.
Be a Troop Leader or Co-Leader
Work with other bright, creative people as a team to guide girls in growing leadership skills and having fun. A troop leader coordinates and organizes the meeting activities, works with girls, and engages families to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Adults in a co-troop leader role partner to share responsibility and leadership for the meeting activities and other troop needs with other troop leaders.
Be a Troop Support Volunteer
Support the girls’ experience by working with the troop leaders as a team to help with troop activities. Tasks can include assisting with field trips or driving, managing troop records, organizing snacks, or other tasks necessary to keep the troop running oh-so-smoothly from week to week.
Be a Troop Product Manager
Coordinate the annual cookie or fall sale at the troop level. Set up cookie booths, manage inventory and money, and then watch the girls light up as they discover their entrepreneurial spirits and set and achieve goals as a troop!
Be an Area Team Volunteer
Support and mentor adult volunteer members in your Area Team (a local geographic region of our council) while maintaining local connections and visibility in your community.
Be a Volunteer On Call
Do you have specific skills or passions you can share? Lend local troops a hand by teaching girls about your area of expertise. Whether you're experienced in improv comedy, computer programming, public speaking, or using power tools, building girl leaders takes a village, and your knowledge is needed!
