2019 Volunteer Appreciation Month

Volunteer Appreciation Month

Without you, there’s no us—so THANK YOU!

That’s right: because of you we’re able to build girls of courage, confidence, and character and prepare them for the lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure that every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ deserves.  Although everything girls do in Girl Scouts is girl-led, mentors like you make all the difference in the quality of a girl’s experience and the amazing things she learns she is capable of accomplishing. Because when your G.I.R.L. spirit shines, hers does too. 

That's why in April (National Volunteer Month!), we join Points of Light, the world's largest organization dedicated to volunteer service, to celebrate the powerful and inspiring contributions volunteers make all year long. It’s a fact: without our volunteers, we couldn’t and wouldn’t be the largest girls’ leadership development organization in the world. But we are. So THANK YOU! 

And on April 22, the party is especially big as we celebrate Girl Scout Leader’s Day. What can we say? We really love Girl Scout volunteers!


 Thanks to all our Girl Scout VIPs!

 Parents and Girl Scouts, celebrate with us on social media!

All month long, show your favorite Girl Scout volunteer how much they mean to you with a straight-from-the-heart, personalized ecard. Choose from four predesigned templates. Just fill in the blank to finish the sentence, and share your ecard with them on Facebook, on Twitter, or by email!

During National Volunteer Week (April 15–21) you can also head on over to FacebookTwitter, and Instagram, to show love for your favorite Girl Scout volunteer by sharing what makes them so special to you. Be sure to mention all the ways you support them throughout the year too. And remember to tag @girlscoutsgcnwi and use #NVW2018 so we can follow the love!
