The leaders of tomorrow are selling Girl Scout cookies today!

With your help, girls will do more and dream more. They have more opportunities to explore who they are through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. They give more to their communities and achieve more than they ever thought possible. As a volunteer you help girls discover what really matters to them, connect with others and take action to make the world a better place.

 

Characteristics of Girl Scout Volunteers

Philip de Montmollin

First, Girl Scout volunteers care. They care about each other, they care about other people, they care about their families. Not just plain old "care," but sincere, deep-down, bottom-of-the-heart kind of care. They care about people who have less than they do. They care about people who have more. They care about their council, they care about the national organization. They care about the youth of the world and, of course, most especially, they care about girls.

Next, all of the Girl Scout volunteers I've met are committed. They have a deep sense of commitment to the purpose of Girl Scouting. They believe in what they are doing. They have made personal commitments to help our country's young women. They support the Girl Scout promise and law, and live them both in their daily lives. Girl Scout volunteers work hard. Whatever you say about Girl Scout volunteer work, you can't say it's easy. It's hard work. That's okay because Girl Scout volunteers are busy active people, full of energy and enthusiasm. They have faith in others, especially in girls. They have faith in their council, faith in their community, faith in God. Girl Scout volunteers are special, very special. Not everyone can be one. Some try and don't succeed. But those who do are special, some of the most special people in the world. People just like you.
