For Volunteers

Aside from planning events and attending off-site trips, volunteers also help out by participating in the Girl Scout Cookie Program and the Fall Product Program! As a volunteer, you’ll assist in coordinating the program at the troop level, setting up fun cookie booths, managing the inventory and money… all while helping teach your troop about business ethics. Another great reward? You get to watch the girls light up when they earn the recognitions they’re working so hard for—and that’s a really good feeling.

Our volunteers make a huge difference and a positive impact on the girls in their troops. Looking for more reasons you should participate in the Fall Product and/or Girl Scout Cookie Program? We’ll give them to you.
