Become a Volunteer

Girl Scouts empowers girls everywhere to stand up and make a difference. By nurturing innovation and developing leadership skills, volunteers prepare girls to overcome challenges and advocate for their ideas. With an emphasis on self-discovery, character building, and community impact, Girl Scouts helps girls become a powerful force for good in the world.

Serving as a Troop Leader is a commitment to helping girls grow in courage, confidence, and character! Troop Leaders connect girls with opportunities to develop their skills and challenge them to think creatively about how they can make the world a better place. With the help of a co-leader, Troop Leaders will organize Troop meetings 1-2 times per month for 60-90 minutes.

Our research shows that girls need to shape their own paths to develop leadership skills. Because of this, we have a digital resource, the Volunteer Toolkit, to guide Troop Leaders through organizing meetings and accomplishing badges and journeys. Plus, every Troop Leader has a team of council staff members and other volunteers to provide guidance and share resources.
