Be the troop leader that supports her every week—the one that watches her smile get bigger as she grows more confident. Mentor a Girl Scout Cookie Professional during cookie season so she can earn enough to reach the goals she and her troop set. Or work with other adults to provide the kind of behind-the-scenes support that makes it possible for her to make amazing new memories at Girl Scouts.

Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible and fun.

Volunteer Roles

Troop Volunteer Roles
  • Troop Leader/Troop Co-Leader                               
    Ready for a leadership role? Troop Leaders are memory makers: they lead and guide a group of girls through Girl Scouting, and they take the girls’ interests and abilities into consideration when planning out their fun. As girls get older, Troop Leaders guide more than lead, but continue to help girls develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Each troop should have one Leader and one Co-Leader.
  • Troop Helper                       
    Want to work with girls but not quite ready for a leadership role? These volunteers play a big role in making the troop run smoothly. They're an extra set of eyes, ears and hands that allows the troop to safely explore the world around them. Need a driver for adventures big and small? Someone to chaperone a trip? Troop Committee Volunteers can do it all!
  • Troop Product Program Manager - Cookies                                     
    Ready to dive in but not available for a full year? This volunteer handle all aspects of the Girl Scout Cookie Program at the troop level – from planning activities to entering data in our online system, and they work primarily from December through April. When it comes to cookies, these girls mean business!
  • Troop Product Program Manager - Nut, Candy, Magazine          
    Ready to dive in but not available for a full year? The NCM program allows girls to earn funds early for their troop, so it needs an adult to manage all aspects – from planning activities to entering data in our online system. These volunteers work primarily from September through December.
