Recognize Volunteers

Do you know an adult volunteer who deserves recognition? 

Showing love and appreciation for our volunteers is a long-standing Girl Scout tradition. After all, our volunteers are Ah-mazing! 

Our volunteers are all about the girls and often work extra hours on top of full schedules and busy lives. We love them for it and, well, Girl Scouting wouldn’t be the same without them. Let’s be sure to shout it from the Girl Scout rooftops!
