Anna Maria Chávez Kicks off Volunteer Appreciation Week by Thanking all Girl Scout Volunteers!

Girl Scouts of the USA is kicking off Volunteer Appreciation Week by thanking all of our volunteers for volunteering for girls. Without a paycheck and without any fanfare, Girl Scout volunteers devote themselves to girl leadership. They put in long hours, stay patient as girls lead their own activities, and bring fun and spirit to everything girls do. Girl Scout volunteers are making a difference in the world, one girl at a time.

Anna Maria Chávez, Chief Executive Officer of the Girl Scouts of the USA, filmed a video, personally thanking all Girl Scout volunteers. Chávez acknowledges the over 800,000 Girl Scout volunteers who work tirelessly to make sure the mission of Girl Scouting comes to life. In its 100th anniversary year, Girl Scouts of the USA has affirmed its unwavering commitment to girls’ leadership with the launch of ToGetHerThere, the largest, boldest advocacy and fundraising cause dedicated to girls’ leadership in the nation’s history. The multi-year effort will seek to create balanced leadership—the equal representation of women in leadership positions in all sectors and levels of society—within one generation. ToGetHerThere will be made possible by volunteers.

Volunteer Appreciation Week is set aside especially for volunteers. Girl Scouts pay tribute to the volunteers who help girls make the world a better place.
