Girl Scout volunteers, along with adult members and partners, impact girls through their guidance and mentoring opportunities, resulting in development of skills and growing confidence that will last a lifetime. They give their time, effort and passion to help girls make the world a better place. Girl Scouting wouldn’t be possible without them!
This is why it’s so important to say thank you. That’s where you come in!
There are all kinds of Girl Scout awards available to recognize the many different people - leaders, parents, friends in the community, service team members, and others - who make Girl Scouting happen. Please take a moment to consider the various awards and submit your nomination to the council by January 31.
