Note that extended travel (more than two* nights) is not covered under the basic Girl Scout insurance plan and will require additional coverage. *On Federal holiday weekends only (e.g. Labor, Memorial Day) basic insurance is extended to three nights. All other trips, three nights or more require additional coverage. Refer to the chart below for more information.
Girl Scouts is about sharing the fun, friendship, and the inherent power of girls and women in an inclusive, supportive, girl-led environment!
Girl Scout volunteers are a dynamic and diverse group, and there’s no one “type” of volunteer. Whether you’re a recent college grad, a parent, a retiree, or really, anyone with a sense of curiosity and adventure (female or male, who has passed the necessary screening process), your unique skills and experiences help make Girl Scouting a powerful leadership experience for girls.
Troop volunteer roles are: Leader, cookie manager, treasurer, fall product manager, first aider, helper, and activity driver. There are volunteer roles outside of the troop: service unit team volunteer. In addition, we offer other volunteer opportunities: help at the council level (events & training).
Adult volunteers working directly with girls or administrative volunteers are required to:
- Be members of Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA)
- Have a current eligible criminal background check (CBC) on file with our council
- Complete training offered for their volunteer role
- Be at least 21 years old to drive girls other than their own
What all members share are the Girl Scout Promise and Law, as well as our extraordinary strengths as go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders. Each member also agrees to follow safety guidelines and pay the annual membership dues of $25. Adults have the option to purchase a lifetime membership for $400.
