Volunteering is flexible and fun, and you’ll play a huge part in helping to build girls of courage, confidence, and character. Volunteer today!

Ways to Volunteer

Whether you want to lead a troop of Girl Scouts, mentor girls during the cookie sale, or just help carpool, there is a place for you in Girl Scouts. Check out our volunteer roles to see what interests you the most:

Troop Leader or Co-Leader: Guide a group of girls—a “troop”—and mentor them as they make new friends, practice a lifetime of leadership with girl-led activities, and so much more! Sign up »

Team-Led Troop Leader or Troop Volunteer: Different than the traditional Girl Scout troop model, where one or two troop leaders hold the bulk of the responsibility for coordinating troop meetings and logistics, the team-led troop approach spreads troop responsibilities around—giving everyone an opportunity to be involved in their girl’s troop experience and leadership! Download the Starting a Team-led Troop (PDF) resource as a guide or contact us to learn more about this model.

Troop Volunteers: Assist with driving, activity planning, snacks, money management, or other tasks necessary to keep the troop running oh-so-smoothly. Sign up »

Juliette Mentor: A Girl Scout Juliette Mentor is a parent/guardian or trusted adult who guides a Juliette (individual Girl Scouts not participating in a troop) through her Girl Scout experience. Mentors lead their girl, just as troop leaders lead their troop. Sign up »

Cookie Volunteers (or Troop Cookie Managers): Coordinate the annual cookie sale at the troop level. Set up cookie booths, manage inventory and money, and then watch the girls light up when they earn their cookie rewards for being the best cookie sellers ever! Sign up »

Service Unit Volunteers: Support and mentor adult volunteers in your service unit (a local geographic unit of troops/groups within Girl Scouts River Valleys) as they work with Girl Scouts to create memories they will never forget. Sign up »

Committees & Advisory Groups: In addition to the elected Board of Directors and the volunteers in roles listed above, volunteer committees and advisory groups contribute greatly to the future and success of Girl Scouts River Valleys. Learn more »
