Welcome to the great adventure of Girl Scouting! Thanks to volunteers like you, generations of girls have learned to be leaders in their lives and in the world. Little can compare to the satisfaction you’ll feel as you help girls grow in self-confidence, discover their genuine selves, connect with the people and community around them, and take action to make a difference in the world.

We are embracing the Juliette Gordon Low legacy, of improving our environment and protecting our natural resources, by offering some of the adult volunteer learning opportunities online. If you have any questions concerning the content of these courses, please contact your local Volunteer Services Staff.
