Every girl has the ability to lead. But only one in five girls believes she can. A lack of role models, unhealthy images of beauty, peer pressure to not stand out, and a mean-girl culture are just some of the obstacles that stand between girls and their full potential.
As a Girl Scout volunteer, you'll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they're capable of more than they ever imagined. You'll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last long after the meeting is over. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories made--those are the moments you'll share at Girl Scouts.
Be the role model she'll always remember!

Information for Parents
Who do you want the girl in your life to become? Whether she is 5 or 17, you want her to become self-confident, strong, and compassionate. You want her to respect herself and others, make good decisions, be open to new challenges, and use her skills and talents to make her world a better place. You want her to build strong friendships, be a leader, and put her values into practice in her everyday life.
You want her to become her best self.
Social pressure, image issues, and uncertain security—there are so many potential hurdles to girls' well-being. For over 100 years, Girl Scouts has been helping girls realize their full potential through everything that the Girl Scout Leadership Experience provides.
Your Time, Your Life
Your calendar is full. Your to-do list is jam-packed. You want to help out, but it's almost impossible to find the time. Don't panic! You don't have to give up your life to support your girl.
Because there are only so many hours in a day, girls, along with their parents and guardians, have to balance many growing and diverging interests, commitments, and responsibilities. You'll be surprised at how flexible Girl Scouting is today. You can choose how little or how much time and energy you can give—an hour, a day, or maybe just a "thank you" to your Girl Scout's troop or group leader.
Customize Your Role
From being the "head cheerleader" who encourages and supports her daughter in Girl Scouting, to accompanying the girls on a field trip to a local museum, to helping raise the funds and traveling with a group to a Girl Scout World Centre in India, you can use your skills and explore your interests. Here are a few of the many ways you can support your Girl Scout:
- Suggest a fun day trip
- Set up a phone tree
- Coordinate transportation for an outing
- Be a guest speaker
- Teach girls a new skill
- Design a troop photo album or Website
- Join girls on a field trip
- Learn first aid at a Girl Scout Council - sponsored training session so that you can support girls on outings
- Become an advocate in your community for Girl Scouting
- Tell your girl you're proud of her

Once a Girl Scout, always a Girl Scout
As a Girl Scout, you hiked trails and camped out under the stars. You canvassed your neighborhood to sell Trefoils and Thin Mints. You honed your skills with each badge you earned. You learned to lead. And you built lifelong friendships.
Are you a woman or a man that was a troop leader, volunteer, or staff member? If so, you are part of the Girl Scout Alumnae network! Each of us has a success story to tell and memories to share. And all of us are looking to reconnect with old friends, while finding a way to support this generation of girls. View the Alumnae Impact Study at the link below.
