Just like the Girl Scouts they guide, volunteers lead with their hearts and bring a playful sense of curiosity to everything they do. Whatever their unique skills or interests, volunteers help Girl Scouts unlock their limitless potential and make a lasting difference in the world.
See for yourself how empowering it is to be a role model. Look for Girl Scout volunteer opportunities near you—whether you’re looking for short-term opportunities or to start a troop of your own, connect with your local Girl Scout council and start making an impact.
Here you will find all that you need to prepare and facilitate your council volunteer opportunities. We have resources for trainers, delegates, troop leaders, service units, camp directors, and those involved with Adventurers. Thank you for volunteering with Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline!

Council Trainers Needed
Have you enjoyed a Girl Scout training you attended? Could you see yourself helping new leaders? We are in need of more volunteer council trainers, especially for Outdoor Education, Hiking, Backpacking, Event Planning, and Bronze, Silver, and Gold workshops! As a volunteer organization, we are always in need of trainers to help provide the most accurate information to our leaders, volunteers and older girls. If you love Girl Scouting, this is a great way to volunteer. Trainers are needed in all areas of the council (especially more rural areas) to bring training closer to each Girl Scout service unit.
