The Council’s governing body is its Board of Directors. Under the leadership of the President (Chief Volunteer Officer), the Board maintains the integrity and the purpose of Girl Scouting. The Board’s responsibilities include policymaking, fund development, and strategic planning. Governance members are volunteers who are elected by and accountable to the voting members of the Council.
From being the "head cheerleader" who encourages and supports her daughter in Girl Scouting, to accompanying the girls on a field trip to a local museum, to helping raise the funds and traveling with a group of Girl Scouts to Washington, DC, you can use your skills and explore your interests, while you support your Girl Scout.
Girl Scout Volunteers are a diverse group of adults made up of both women and men, with ages ranging from fresh out of high school to retired. Our volunteers offer a variety of expertise, skills, interests, and life experiences to help nurture each girl’s individuality and leadership qualities.
