Kristen Eliason
Waterford | Service Unit 3616

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

What do you like best about your role with Girl Scouts?
Seeing the girls grow and learn new things and how excited they get when they try something new and really like it.

Describe a moment you've had in Girl Scouts you'll never forget.
Taking the girls in our older troop camping in covered wagons. It was quite the experience. The girls still talk about it. My co-leader and I still laugh hysterically about the whole trip.

What do you most want your Girl Scouts to learn from you or remember about you and their Girl Scout experience?
That there is not anything they can't accomplish if they set a goal and work for it. I want them to have had fun and remember
how important it is to always give someone a hand 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
