Girl Scouts Need Adult Volunteers!

Girls in grades K-12 are eager to join Girl Scouts of Connecticut, and adult volunteers are needed to make Girl Scouting possible!  Adults are trained to guide girls in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, which brings life and job skills, new experiences, and friendships to both girls and adults.  Leaders love being a mentor and advocate for girls, helping them develop strong values and self-esteem, fostering their discovery of important issues, and encouraging them to take action to help others and the world around them.

While the benefits of Girl Scouting to girls are obvious, the wide range of advantages to volunteers is not as well publicized.  Yet Girl Scout volunteers will enthusiastically mention the skills they have learned or honed - organization, goal setting, communication, conflict resolution, and marketing, to name a few - as well as new hobbies, association with people they respect, trips to interesting places, and leadership abilities that make them an effective force for good in their family, community, and professional lives.  Training materials are provided for volunteer positions; Girl Scout Council staff and experienced volunteers provide accessible, practical courses and support that make every volunteer's time and efforts more efficient and effective.

Whether an adult can give a consistent amount of time each week or month or only a few hours now and again, there are many ways for people to volunteer.  Girl Scout alumnae and former Leaders, consider joining the current volunteers and help bring Girl Scouting to more girls.

For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact the Membership Department at (800) 922-2770 or email membership@gsofct.org.  For more information about Girl Scouts of Connecticut, please visit http://www.gsofct.org/.
