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

What do you like best about your role with Girl Scouts?
The best part of leading any group, young or old is the giggles, the smiles, the "thanks, that was the best" or the " WOW! I never tried that before!". Most important working together as a team with Girl Scouts of all ages so that everyone has fun, a new experience and makes new friends!

Describe a moment you've had in Girl Scouts you'll never forget.
There are so many happy memories, I could never choose just one. However, the bond with my own daughter as we tried new experiences, met new people, the new places we explored and all because of Girl Scouts will forever be special to me.

What do you most want your Girl Scouts to learn from you or remember about you and their Girl Scout experience? 
That I was willing to fail or succeed right along with them .

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
