Providing the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls is not possible without the time and dedication of our volunteers!

Research shows that the influence one caring adult has on a child will last a lifetime. So no matter what your interests are, your age, or amount of time you can offer, Girl Scouts needs your help to provide opportunities for girls to build their courage, confidence and character.

There are many different volunteer opportunities available. Adults can choose to work directly with the girls or indirectly with the girls.

Working directly with girls could mean being a leader or advisor to girls or offer to help a leader/advisor, design and/or facilitate a program or event for girls, or share a skill, career or special interest with girls.

Working indirectly with the girls could mean reaching out to the community by helping with public relations efforts, suggesting and coordinating a service project, or speaking about Girl Scouts to community groups. You can also support Girl Scouts by working with other adults. This could mean serving on the Board of Directors, leading a workshop or training for adult Girl Scout volunteers, or providing administrative assistance with ongoing record keeping or other paperwork.

      Hi Connie…So glad you’re interested in being atroop leader! If you go to our website at the above address, you can read more about volunteering, and even fill out the application on line (it’s in the lefthand column)

      Being a troop leader is fun and rewarding….so I hear from many leaders! You and the girls and parents set the meeting times and frequency. I’m going pass on your email to one of our staff in the New Hartford area as well so she can follow-up with you.
      Have a good evening!
