Ways to Volunteer
Whether you can give a few hours, a few weeks, or a few months, volunteering with Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana is flexible and fun!
Below you'll find the many volunteer opportunities we offer.
There are many roles that can fit with your lifestyle including:
- Troop Leader or Assistant Leader - Work with a group of girls and mentor them as they make new friends and develop connections that will last a lifetime.
- Troop Family and Friends - Assist with driving, activity planning, snacks, money management, or other tasks necessary to keep the troop running smoothly.
- Troop Cookie Volunteers - Coordinate the annual cookie sale at the troop level incluing cookie booth set-up, inventory and money management.
- Service Unit Volunteers - Mentor adult volunteers as they work with Girl Scouts to create memories they will never forget!
Have questions first? Contact us and someone will be in touch.
Girl Scouts also need volunteers at events, programs, and camps.
Share your time, talents and skills with girls and adults one-time, for a short term, or by joining a committee.
If you don't see an opportunity that fits your desires, call Julie Gilmartin at 630-544-5973 to discuss what your group would like to accomplish.
