National Volunteer Appreciation Week: April 21-27
Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day: Monday, April 22
Thank you for creating a supportive environment that encourages successful futures for all girls!
Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day is a day of appreciation for adult volunteers in Girl Scouting held on April 22 every year. Girl Scouts is an outstanding leadership organization for girls due to the exceptional effort put forward by our volunteers. Join us in celebrating all our wonderful adult volunteers during National Volunteer Appreciation Week and as we give a special shout out to Girl Scout Leaders on Leader Appreciation Day.
Although volunteers are always appreciated, it is during these special days that we take the time to acknowledge that our adult volunteers are our neighborhood heroes and the lifeblood of the Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline organization. We encourage the girls, their families and service unit/Girl Scout communities to plan special gestures to show appreciation for the adult Girl Scout volunteers in their lives.
Here are a few of the many ways to express your appreciation:

The Outstanding Leader Award
Recognize a leader or co-leader for the great work they do for Girl Scouts! The Outstanding Leader Award is a great way to say thank you to your favorite leader or assistant leader. After all, they make it possible for girls to be in a troop and experience all that Girl Scouting has to offer. The recipient will be listed in the council’s permanent files and will receive a lapel pin and attractive certificate signed by our council president as well as the CEO of Virginia Skyline. It is easy to nominate someone for this special recognition. The Outstanding Leader Award can be given at any time; there is no deadline for nominations. Complete a nomination form and ask two people associated with the troop to complete a letter-of-support form.
