Flexible Ways to Belong

Across the country, the Girl Scout community is hard at work on a whole new approach to make sure that everyone can participate in Girl Scouting in the ways they want to. As a volunteer, you can choose from flexible ways to participate that can be tailored to fit your schedule and lifestyle. You can also volunteer behind the scenes, in a GS office, instead of volunteering directly with girls.

Girls can choose any one, all, or some of the options—camp, events, series, troop, travel— within a single membership year. 

As a volunteer, you, too, have the option of partnering with girls throughout a membership year or committing to an opportunity for only a few weeks or months. Based on independent research and extensive surveys with thousands of council staff members from around the country, we have a good sense of which options will interest girls, based on their grade levels. These are reflected in this chart:

Girls of all levels can explore their skills and interests while helping to shape a variety of fun and enriching leadership experiences that inspire them to reach their personal best. No matter where and how girls participate, they get the necessary guidance from adult volunteers and council staff to develop leadership skills and understand how those skills can be used to make a difference in the world.
