Volunteer Appreciation

Showing appreciation for volunteers is a must! Dedicated volunteers and mentors like you make all the difference in the quality of a girl’s experience, and because of you, we’re able to prepare girls for the lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure that every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ deserves.  

Thank you, Volunteers!  We couldn’t do it without you!

National Volunteer Month and Girl Scout Leader's Day 

When your G.I.R.L. spirit shines, hers does too. That's why in April (National Volunteer Month), we celebrate the powerful and inspiring contributions volunteers make all year long. 

April 22 is Girl Scout Leader's Day and honors all the volunteers who work as leaders and mentors in partnership with girls. Girls, their families, and communities should find a special way to thank their adult Girl Scout volunteers. 

From April 1 through April 30, 2021 , use code  VOLUNTEER2021  for 10% off from our online  Girl Scout Shop  to bring a smile to a volunteer’s face!
