How to Get Involved

A Troop Leader is the cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping Girl Scouts develop essential life skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. The greatest need is always troop leaders – so many girls want to be Girl Scouts and finding qualified leaders can be difficult in some communities. Learn about how you can become involved!

There are some specific events and one-off volunteer opportunities. These include staffing a registration table to painting cabins at camp. Please email for more information.

Donations are always welcome and used for the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. To learn more about how your contribution will help, click here.
