Ways to Volunteer
Your time is valuable, and here at Girl Scouts we have many opportunities to volunteer so the amount of time committed is your choice. Here are some brief descriptions for different volunteer opportunities to help you decide which is right for you.
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! Join Now »
Team-Led Troop Leader or Troop Volunteer: Instead of one or two troop leaders primarily coordinating troop meetings and logistics, like in a volunteer-led troop, the team-led troop approach spreads troop responsibilities around. Everyone gets 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 some of the many important tasks that keep troops going! Possible responsibilities include carpooling, planning activities, bringing snacks, keeping track of troop money, or helping your troop renew their memberships! Join Now »
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. Join Now »
Cookie Volunteers (or Troop Cookie Managers): Cookie volunteers get to teach girls about goal setting, money management and people skills, plus pick up cookies, track cookie sales and distribute rewards to some very excited girls! Join Now »
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. Join Now »
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 »
