Ways to Volunteer
Groups of Girl Scouts that meet together regularly are called troops. Find out what makes them special, and learn how you can start a new troop with our help.
Troop volunteers help Girl Scouts become stronger, kinder, and braver than they ever thought possible. Troop Leaders—and volunteers in other roles, like troop treasurer or cookie chair—engage regularly with their Girl Scouts and guide them through activities, like earning badges, exploring the outdoors, or running their own business through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. No experience is necessary!
The best part? There’s no one “type” of volunteer. If you believe that Girl Scouts can change the world, you belong here. Join now and see how you can make the most impact. You don’t have to have a kid of your own to get involved, you simply have to care. We can help get you started.
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 troop volunteer opportunities to help you decide which is right for you.

Training and Volunteer Requirements
As a Girl Scout volunteer, you will be part of a network of thousands of talented volunteers just like you. Online training is offered for all volunteer positions. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver’s license or California ID, and must complete a screening process, which includes a criminal background check. Volunteers are also asked to register as a member in Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA). Registration for adult volunteers is $25 and goes to GSUSA to pay for accident insurance covering participation in approved Girl Scout activities, program research and resources, training and services to Councils. Volunteers may request financial assistance to help with the annual registration fee.
