Do you know someone who makes a lasting impact? Nominate them for an Adult Award! Nominations for awards must be submitted no later than May 15th each year.

Girl Scout Volunteers work hard to create a fun and empowering environment for our Girls. They put in extended time and often work extra hours on top of busy schedules and hectic lives to bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to our Girl Scouts. Being a Girl Scout volunteer is a big but rewarding experience. Many go above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of Girls. Our volunteers are amazing and we want to make sure they are shown the proper love and appreciation they deserve! Recognizing the volunteers who have shown outstanding contributions to our organization is the key to volunteer appreciation and retention.
Formal Recognition & Awards
Leader Appreciation Day
Volunteer Appreciation Month 2021
Things may look and feel very different right now, but what hasn’t changed is the outsized impact you continue to have on Girls’ lives. When you take the lead as a volunteer, Girls discover that they too can take on leadership roles and change the world.
That's why National Volunteer Month is so near and dear to our hearts. Every April, we celebrate the powerful, life-changing contributions our volunteers make to Girl Scouts all year long. Because of you, we have community. Because of you, we have resilience. Because of you, we have Girl Scouts. So thank you from the bottom of our hearts for volunteering with us.
Check out our upcoming events for volunteers to celebrate you this Volunteer Appreciation Month!
