EPIC Girl Scout Volunteer Appreciation Stories 💚

Happy National Volunteer Appreciation Month!

Girl Scout Volunteers are fabulous and magical like unicorns, only better! 🦄

Let’s face it, our Movement wouldn’t be the same without your commitment, spark, and giving hearts. Whether you’re a Girl Scout troop leader, volunteer, or a cookie parent/caregiver, you deserve to be celebrated and appreciated for changing lives, instilling hope, and building girls of courage, confidence, and character.

There are endless ways in which Girl Scout volunteers make the world a better place. So, we asked our community on social media to share their favorite volunteer stories and photos. The response was overwhelming, in the best way possible. Get ready to laugh out loud and even shed a happy tear!

For girls, the impact of volunteers is clear! According to the Girl Scout Research Institute, girls who have at least one adult in Girl Scouts who makes them feel valuable and helps them think about their future exhibit stronger leadership outcomes than girls who lack this support. And Girl Scouts are more likely to have such supportive adults than non-Girl Scouts.

Because you believe, she achieves. Thank you for all you do!

Show Your Volunteers Some Love: visit the Girl Scout Activity Zone to find some ways to show your volunteer how much you appreciate them. While April is Volunteer Appreciation Month, it’s always the right time to say thanks.
