Volunteering

 

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences and help them unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to take the lead and change the world.

You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop crucial skills and confidence to launch them into a lifetime of leadership. Imagine the excitement, the memories made, and the impact—this is what you’ll share as a Girl Scout volunteer.

Volunteering can come in many shapes and sizes

Many of our volunteers are parents of girls in the program.  All families will be requested to volunteer some time to help with their daughters’ troop during the year – acting as leaders or co-leaders, assisting at meetings, helping with troop administration or planning troop outings. Without your help we can’t guarantee that there will be a troop for your daughter’s age group.

However we  invite all English-speaking adults to consider supporting the Geneva Girl Scouts, whether you have girls in the program or not; regardless of previous involvement in any Girl Scouting movement; if you can offer a weekly commitment to a troop or an occasional help with a particular skill that you have to offer, it would be great to have you involved. Please contact us. 

 

According to Girl Scouts research:

  • Ninety-five percent of volunteers say they make girls’ lives better at Girl Scouts (and that makes them happy).
  • Eighty-eight percent of Girl Scout volunteers say their volunteer experience with us makes their life better.
  • Two-thirds of volunteers say Girl Scouts has helped them professionally.
