Be the role model she'll always remember.

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. They’ll each find their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ after all! We always need troop leaders to start new troops for girls in grades K-12, and there are numerous other opportunities to get involved.
