As a lifetime member, Girl Scouts has meant a great deal to me. I earned my Gold Award and was able to go backpacking in Zion National Park, canoeing in the Boundary Waters, and attend a music camp in North Carolina, among other things. I became passionate about the outdoors, community service, and travel. After working in my field for a number of years I served in the Peace Corps in the Phillipines and am now a Park Ranger at Everglades National Park. My thirteen years as a girl scout in this council introduced me to a wide world of experiences that led me to where I am and who I am today.

I was a troop leader for many years and I have to say, I was impressed with the safety standards of the organization, and the training and ongoing support they provide their volunteers. To volunteer as a troop leader, I had to provide references, had a background check, and a co-leader who was not related in any way. The organization looked after everything and provided me training before I ever held my first meeting. Admittedly, I was a little nervous at first because I had no idea what I was doing. But the organization and its volunteer support system helped me to feel included and gave me a wealth of resources to rely on for support.

I only became a leader because I wanted my daughter to continue in the program and her leader had just quit. I knew it was good for my daughter, but I had no idea the impact I would have on the other girls in my troop. Next to raising my own kids, mentoring the girls in my troop was one of the most important things I ever done. I can't think of a better way to give back to my community and have an impact in the world.

I'd like to see them have a larger presence in the community. Girl Scouts provides so many great opportunities for girls and volunteers, but it's one of the best kept secrets - not sure people really know what they're missing.

Want to make a difference in a girls life, but don’t have a lot of time to spend?  Girl Scouts offers many opportunities for volunteers to mentor girls in their field of expertise.  Are you a business executive with expertise in banking, marketing, or human resources - you might enjoy sharing your knowledge at our Girl Scout Leadership Summit for high school aged girls.

Are you in the construction industry?  Consider participating in Ms. Fix It, a one day event to give elementary aged girls a hands-on look at careers in the construction industry.

If you have a talent or area of expertise, we have a short-term opportunity to pair you with a girl who shares your interest and could benefit from your mentoring!
