Work with other bright, creative people as a team to guide girls in
growing life and leadership skills though teamwork and exciting
activities. A troop leader coordinates and organizes the meeting
activities, communicates with parents and families, and engages girls
to create memories that will last a lifetime.
Troops can have multiple troop leaders, typically 2-3, that team up to share responsibility and leadership for the meeting activities.
Ways to Volunteer
Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months,
volunteering with Girl Scouts is flexible and fun (and we offer all of
the training and
resources you need to be successful)!
In order to ensure that volunteering with Girl Scouts is safe, supportive, and fun for everyone, all volunteers complete membership registration, a background check, and are covered under GSNorCal insurance.
Be the troop leader who supports her through her Girl Scout experience—the one that watches her smile get bigger as she grows more confident. Mentor a Girl Scout Cookie Professional during cookie season so she can earn enough to reach the goals she and her troop set. Or work with other adults to provide the kind of behind-the-scenes support that makes it possible for her to make amazing new memories at Girl Scouts.
