It's always the right time to make a difference—and now is the perfect time to do that as a Girl Scout volunteer. Discover how good it feels to help Girl Scouts find their voice.
Just by being yourself, you can be a person that girls can count on—the one who listens intently, who encourages them to chase their goals, who keeps them laughing, and who helps them feel confident in who they are. Together, you’ll build a community where every girl is celebrated and valued.
You don't have to have a child of your own to get involved; all you need is a passion for mentoring the next generation of leaders. Girl Scouts of Colorado is ready to get you started!
Do you have just a few hours or a few days to give? Do you have a special skill or expertise that you could share to help girls discover something new and earn a badge? Being a program volunteer may be the right fit for you!

Troop Leadership Team
Girl Scout troop leaders prepare girls for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure in a safe, all-girl, no-limits environment. Imagine the excitement, memories, and impact you’ll have as you help your girls discover what interests them and how to make a difference in their world. With you as their troop leader, they’ll go as far as their imaginations can take them.
In every Girl Scout troop, two or more leaders work with their girls to plan a progressive series of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, exploring science, getting outdoors, selling cookies, and doing community service projects. Troop leaders are supported by troop support volunteers, online training and planning tools, a local team of experienced Girl Scout volunteers, and dedicated staff.
Setting realistic goals, creating budgets, and keeping accurate records are at the heart of this position—whether you’re working with girls or maintaining the troop’s finances. Your organizational skills and attention to detail will help your girls learn how to bring their plans to life. Two unrelated adult volunteers are required to be signers on the troop bank account
Troop Support Volunteers
Join the team of volunteers who inspire girls to explore being go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders! Your troop’s leaders will help you find the role that matches your skills and availability—such as maintaining the troop’s finances, transporting girls to their next adventure, or helping them shine as entrepreneurs at Girl Scout Cookie booths. Troop support volunteers are supported by their troop leaders, online training and planning tools, a local team of experienced Girl Scout volunteers, and dedicated staff.
Cookie/ Fall Product Manager
The Girl Scout Cookie and Fall Product Programs help your girls learn about goal setting, decision-making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Cookie and Fall Product Managers coordinate and organize troop sales, record keeping and money handling so that every girl can participate in these national programs.
Service units are local communities of Girl Scouts. Service unit teams are made up of volunteers who support the work of troop volunteers within that local community. They are a first line of support for troop volunteers and help ensure that Girl Scouting is active and accessible in their community to continue to grow the Girl Scout mission.
Service Unit Manager/Management Team
The Service Unit Manager or Service Unit Management Team helps to recruit, support, guide, and mentor a local group of adult Girl Scout volunteers (troop leaders) that work with youth to discover new skills, make lifelong friends, and have fun changing the world. As part of a service unit’s management team, service unit managers set the service unit’s schedule, plan and facilitate regular service unit meetings, and connect with the local Girl Scout community. This role may be held by one person or be shared as part of a service unit management team in which the role is split into several component parts.
Service Unit Team
The service unit team volunteers assist with the management of the service unit in various ways depending on the needs of the service unit manager(s). Service unit team roles can include treasurer/bank account signer, program support, communication support, event planning, membership support and more as needed.
