Volunteer Resources

Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada

Welcome to the world of Girl Scout volunteering! Your efforts and dedication are helping girls develop the courage, confidence and character needed to make the world a better place. We recognize that by enriching our volunteers’ experience in Girl Scouting, we improve girls’ experience. Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada supports volunteers through a variety of methods and resources. These include:

Service Unit Teams provide community-based guidance and support for organizing and leading your troop, working with parents, and participating in community and council activities.

Volunteer Essentials is a reference for you to use when needed. It provides all of the basic information about the role of volunteers, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, engaging girls and keeping them safe.

Safety Activity Checkpoints outlines the required safety guidelines for specific Girl Scout activities.

And of course our council staff are here to support you throughout your volunteer experience. Whether you have a question about taking girls on a trip, selling cookies or want to register for camp, no question is too large or too small. We are here to help!
