Your calendar is full. Your to-do list is jam-packed. You want to help out, but it's almost impossible to find the time. Don't panic. You don't have to give up your life to support your girl.
Because there are only so many hours in a day, girls, along with their parents and guardians, have to balance many growing and diverging interests, commitments, and responsibilities in a world of PDAs and PTAs. You'll be surprised at how flexible Girl Scouting is today. You can choose how little or how much time and energy you can give—an hour, a day, or maybe just a "thank you" to your Girl Scout's troop or group leader.
Be Involved With Your Girl Scout
Take an hour and get involved! You'll become a part of your girl's life and will enjoy watching her grow as a leader, as a member of a team, and as a girl. While the girls are first in Girl Scouting, it's a lot of fun for grown-ups too!
Customize Your Role
From being the "head cheerleader" who encourages and supports her daughter in Girl Scouting, to accompanying the girls on a field trip to a local museum, to helping raise the funds and traveling with a group to a Girl Scout World Center in India, you can use your skills and explore your interests. Here are a few of the many ways you can support your Girl Scout:
Be A Girl Scout Volunteer
What did you do today? As a Girl Scout volunteer, you'll add meaningful days to girls' lives and to your own. Tackle everything from global warming to election reform. Travel to incredible places. Share your personal passions and create experiences together you'll never forget.
Adult volunteers are the driving force behind Girl Scouting. Without them, the Girl Scout program would be impossible to sustain. Adult volunteers serve in a variety of positions, such as troop leaders, registrars, and trainers. They are given training, support, and help to make their volunteer contribution one that is personally meaningful. Volunteers build skills, share talents, meet other adults with common interests, try new experiences, have fun, and spend quality time with their daughters and her friends. You can support your daughter, make a difference in the life of a girl, and discover the possibilities as an adult volunteer.
