Girl Scout volunteers are community-builders, champions of fun, and
role models for what it means to lead with your heart. And because of
your support, Girl Scouts of all ages are emboldened to chase their
dreams and make a positive impact in their communities and across the
globe. Your mentorship and encouragement are powerful and make a
difference—and your girls will carry that support throughout their
lives. Thank you for all you do.
This guide is designed to support busy troop volunteers on the go.
You can easily find what you need to get started on your Girl Scout
