How long have you been a volunteer with Girl Scouts?
3 years

What do you like best about your role with Girl Scouts?
I love the relationships the girls have and the relationships within the organization that I have built! I also love seeing the girls learn about life and grow into beautiful young ladies. They each have these amazingly wonderful, unique personalities that make our group so fantastic! I also enjoy working with my co-leader. We compliment each other so well. Just like the girls, we have our own strengths and weaknesses, but together we all accomplish more!

Describe a moment you've had in Girl Scouts you'll never forget.
We were volunteering at a community event, and one of the girls had this “aha moment.” She said, “All people want is to know they are important to someone, and we can help that happen!” I was so proud and tearful!

What do you most want your Girl Scouts to learn from you or remember about you and their Girl Scout experience?
I want them to remember how they feel when they are helping others. They can never go wrong in life if they are working toward helping someone else or building someone up!!!

Ask your Girl Scout to share what their volunteer means to them by sending us one of these: 
• A photo of the two of them together 
• A photo of a short, hand-written note of thanks 
• A short thank you video
