Throughout the month of November, Girl Scouts of NYPENN pathways participated in the ‘I can’t wait to volunteer” campaign, working in partnership with GSUSA and many other councils across the nation to spread the word about Girl Scouting and how awesome it is to be a Girl Scout volunteer.
If you are currently a volunteer with us and you referred a friend to Girl Scouts, who then completed a volunteer application, background check, GS101, and began a new Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop during the month of November, you will receive $50.00 to spend in the online Girl Scout store!
And guess what? Your friend who began the new troop, well, her troop is going to receive a volunteer resource pack which includes: Girls Guide to Girl Scouting (Daisy, Brownie or Junior), adult insignia tab, official Girl Scout membership pin, WAGGGS pin, volunteer pin, adult guide/journey book set and tote bag. Resources to help the new troop get started on their Girl Scout journey!
Referrals needed to be completed by December 1st and as of then Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways had about a dozen new troops! Because of you, and your sharing your experience with your friends, lots of new girls will have opportunities in Girl Scouts that they may not have otherwise had!
So, thank you for all that you do for girls in your community.
Watch for your coupon codes, and your friend’s new troop supplies to be sent to you from GSUSA sometime during December and early January.
