Ways to Recognize Volunteers
Adults join Girl Scouting to be of service to girls and to the organization itself. They offer their time, talents, and skills to our council. Their reward is in giving, in their association with girls, and with other adults that are also dedicated to a higher purpose.
When an individual, or group, in Girl Scouting has served with unusual distinction, special thanks are often called for.
If someone has done something special for you or your troop, Just Say Thanks! They can get a personal note from our CEO.
Check out our Pinterest board for ways to say thank you.
Membership Numeral Pins and Volunteer Years of Service Pins recognize the length of time someone has been involved with Girl Scouts. Pins over 20 years are awarded at the Annual Meeting and Recognitions Ceremony in the spring.
