Why Volunteer

Help Girl Scouts dream big.

Change-makers. Trailblazers. Explorers. We’re talking about Girl Scouts, of course, but we’re also talking about the people who become Girl Scout volunteers.

Just like the Girl Scouts they guide, volunteers lead with their hearts and bring a playful sense of curiosity to everything they do. Whatever their unique skills or interests, volunteers help Girl Scouts unlock their limitless potential and make a lasting difference in the world.

See for yourself how empowering it is to be a role model. Look for Girl Scout volunteer opportunities near you—whether you’re looking for short-term opportunities or to start a troop of your own, connect with your local Girl Scout council and start making an impact.


Thank You Girl Scout Volunteers!

 April was National Volunteer Appreciation Month! We are so grateful for the volunteers who make our movement so special. Your time, talent, and dedication to Girl Scouts' mission has an incredible impact on girls in Southern Illinois. Because of you, we're building girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.
