Ways to Volunteer

A Girl Scout Troop is comprised of at least five registered girls and two registered adults. Troops can be formed in age groups or multiple levels, depending on what the leader and Troop members prefer.

At the Troop Level, volunteers are needed in a variety of roles including:

  • Troop Leadership Team: Work wtih a group of Girl Scouts and mentor them as tehy make new friends and develop connections that will last a lifetime.
  • Troop Support Volunteer: Assist with activity planning, snacks, money management, or other tasks necessary to keep the Troop running smoothly throughout the year. 
  • Cookie Volunteers: Coordinate the annual cookie program at the Troop level, helping with cookie booths, inventory management, and money. Watch the Girl Scouts light up when they earn recognitions for being the best cookie sellers.

A Service Unit is comprised of a group of volunteers who offer support to Troops in a specific georgraphic location. Every Troop is part of a Service Unit.

Service Unit volunteers mentor adult volunteers as they work with Girl Scouts to create memories they will never forget.

Many service units also plan events for all of the Troops in their service unit.
