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.

The Volunteer Tool Kit (VTK) is a new digital planning tool that gives you resources and program content to get your year started—and keep it going smoothly! Fully customizable, the toolkit is digitally responsive so you can plan and prepare practically anywhere.

The Opportunity Catalog offers an easy way for girls to renew their membership in Girl Scouts and better visibility for new parents to register new girls by allowing them to search for troops by zip code. It will even show volunteer opportunities for adults. When new members join, the catalog is updated in real time.
