Girl Scout volunteer myths


We hear it all the time: “I love Girl Scouts, but I don’t have a daughter.” Every time we go out into the community to recruit volunteers we hear the rumor that only moms can volunteer. But the truth is that anyone can volunteer; even if you don’t have a daughter or if you’re not a mom. We count on our volunteers to carry out our vision and mission and to provide girls with meaningful and engaging experiences that will help them become the leaders of tomorrow. And to do that we need everyone, moms included. We need dads, aunts, uncles, sisters, brothers, teachers, engineers, financial advisors, facilitators, and lawyers. To serve all different types of girls we need to reach out to all different types of volunteers – and that includes you, too. You can co-lead or lead a troop, manage troop finances, or help lead or facilitate a program or series for the girls.  The possibilities are endless!   

 We also are in need of volunteers who may not want to work directly with girls but still want to support them. We have opportunities that include organizing cookie and product sales, organizing events, administrative work, and so much more. If you’re interested in getting involved with Girl Scouts (moms included!!) click on the links below for more information on current opportunities, or contact us for more information.
