Girl Scouts of America seek volunteers

Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) is now seeking volunteers to help build the go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders of tomorrow.

Girl Scouts is a one-of-a-kind, proven leadership development program that pair girls with strong, caring female role models and mentors who prepare them to take the lead from age five to 18 and into adulthood.

“Help us guide and inspire girls in your community as they embrace new challenges, build important skills, and take the lead,” Karlyn Edmonds, Chief Executive Officer of GSSA, said. “We cannot do this without the community stepping up to help us build the next generation of female leadership.”

At Girl Scouts, there are volunteer opportunities for everyone, from troop roles to role models. Whether you can give a day, a few weeks, or the whole year, it all starts with the volunteers.

“As a volunteer, I try to introduce my girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of so much more than they ever imagined. −from axe throwing, archery, and camping, to coding, robotics, and financial literacy,” GSSA volunteer Sue Williams said. “The impact, memories, and excitement you’ll gain from becoming a volunteer is unimaginable.”

“Being a volunteer has to be one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done,” GSSA volunteer Ashley Cuesta said. “As you work to help mold and shape these girls into strong, confident, and courageous young ladies, it has a way of doing the same to you! I’ve also made so many lifelong friends through volunteering. I think everyone should be a Girl Scout Volunteer.”

Adult volunteers are vital for the survival of continuing the best leadership experience for girls in the world. For more information on how to volunteer or become a Girl Scout, visit girlscoutssa.org or call 800-239-6636.
