Volunteer Appreciation

Thank you, volunteers, for bringing the POWER of Girl Scouting to girls!

Things may look and feel very different right now, but what hasn’t changed is the outsized impact our volunteers continue to have on girls’ lives. When you take the lead as a volunteer, girls discover that they too can take on leadership roles and change the world.

That's why National Volunteer Month is so near and dear to our hearts. Every April, we celebrate the powerful, life-changing contributions our volunteers make to Girl Scouts all year long. No matter what the world throws at us, our volunteers are the ones who keep the Girl Scout spirit strong—their efforts are incredible and appreciated now and throughout the entire year. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank these amazing individuals!

Additionally, every year on April 22—Girl Scout Leader’s Day—we give extra kudos to our fantastic troop leaders. Troop leaders: we love you, and we’re forever grateful to you for being the role models girls look up to, especially in challenging times like these.

Families and Girl Scouts, let’s share the love for our AMAZING volunteers!

For all of April, show your favorite Girl Scout volunteers, like your troop leader or your cookie manager, how much they mean to you. Even if you can’t see them in person right now, here are a few ways to show you care:

  • Call or video chat with them!
  • Personalize one of our predesigned card templates, one for younger girls and one for older girls. Add a straight-from-the-heart message then text or email it to your volunteer/s. They’ll love hearing how they’ve made a difference in your life!
  • Looking to get everyone in on the fun? Consider sending a digital group thank-you via Kudoboard! Each troop member and her family can share a message, photo, or video on your volunteer’s thank-you board. Kudoboard has been officially licensed for a limited time by Girl Scouts of the USA .
