Adult Recognitions

Awards and Recognition

Do you know an adult volunteer who deserves recognition?

Showing love and appreciation for our volunteers is a long-standing Girl Scout tradition. After all, our volunteers are amazing! Our volunteers are all about the girls. We love them for it and, well, Girl Scouting wouldn’t be the same without them.

Our volunteers are changing the lives of girls in their communities every day. Some volunteers go above and beyond all expectations and have a definite impact on not only their troop, but their service unit and sometimes even the whole council.
