Join the fun!
Can parents also be volunteers?
Absolutely! It’s important for you to be involved so that your child gets as much out of Girl Scouts as possible. We can always use your help at meetings, on trips, at the cookie booth, or wherever works for you and your schedule. Click on the join option under the For Parent's tab. Did we mention how much fun you’ll have while you’re there too?
How much time can I commit as a volunteering parent?
You can commit as much or as little time as your schedule allows. Spending quality time with your daughter and other Girl Scouts is a fulfilling experience for everyone—and any time you spend participating will have a positive effect.
My schedule is packed—can I still participate?
You don’t necessarily have to volunteer to participate—you can participate one-on-one with your child. Help her shape her Girl Scout experience, and ask questions about what she’s learning. Give her the support she needs to make her time in Girl Scouts the best it can be.
How does parental involvement enhance the Girl Scout experience?
Many parents tell us that their relationship with their daughter has deepened since participating in Girl Scouts. Bonding over good times and shared experiences is a win-win for everyone.
When can I join as a volunteer?
Why not today? We’re always looking for qualified volunteers to help, whether it’s during the school year, over summer break, or any time in between.
How do I sign up to officially participate in Girl Scouts?
It's easy! Just click "JOIN " and fill out the form and we'll get you connected.
