Thank for your interest in being a Girl Scout volunteer. Here is helpful information to know as you prepare to register as a volunteer.
Registering and "Troop/Other" Participation Option
There are different volunteer roles in Girl Scouts.
Click “Volunteer Today” to register yourself as a Girl Scout volunteer. Have a credit card ready to pay the annual membership fee ($25 for adults). Our registration system sends you automated messages once you enter basic information. That allows you to pick up where you left off, if you’re interrupted while registering, and alerts us that you might need more assistance.
Girl Scouts happens when adults get involved. As a not-for-profit organization, Girl Scouts relies on caring adult volunteers to lead troops so that all girls who want to be Girl Scouts have the opportunity. We are looking for volunteers to form troop leadership teams (2-4 volunteers), sharing the responsibility and fun.
To Find a Troop
Click “register as a volunteer” and enter basic information on the first screen. Click "continue" to see various ways to participate. Enter the troop number, if you know it. To search for troop and group opportunities in your area, enter zip code, and search radius.
Don’t see a troop that works for you? You can…
- Search for an alternative by increasing your search radius.
- Register as UNSURE. UNSURE lets us know that you want to volunteer. We’ll contact you to answer any questions and get more information.
Volunteering without being associated with a troop.
There are many volunteer opportunities with Girl Scouts that adults can do that do not involve being a direct volunteer with troops. Talk it through with us. Call 413-584-2602 and ask to speak with the membership services specialist for your town. A “yes” is great news for Girl Scouts, but it is also okay if your answer is “no”.
Annual Membership Fee
When you join Girl Scouts, you are a member of Girl Scouts of Central & Western MA (your local council) and a member of our national organization, Girl Scouts of the USA. Your membership provides Girl Scouts with the strength in numbers to provide advocacy and support for girls at the national level. As a member, you will have a voice at the local and national level and are eligible to receive the benefits and privileges of membership.
Call us for help at 413-584-2602 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Office hours are Monday-Friday, 9am – 5pm. If you leave a message, we will gladly get back to you. (Check your spam e-mail and voicemail to be sure you didn’t miss our reply.)
When you provide basic contact information, you’ll be on our mailing list so that you can receive information (typically via e-mail) about happenings and fun opportunities to participate in Girl Scouts. You can unsubscribe from these e-mails at any time.
Be the role model she'll always remember.
As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined.
You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories made—those are the moments you’ll share at Girl Scouts.
Start the fun now!
