The Outlook – Monthly Updates for Girl Scout Volunteers


November 2016

Change More Lives & Get $50. Invite a Friend to Volunteer Today!


It’s no surprise that 96 percent of girls have tried at least one new thing as a Girl Scout, right?

As a Girl Scout volunteer, you introduce girls to fun, new, and unique experiences every day, and help them find their spark as they prepare to practice a lifetime of leadership. You’re their biggest fan, their guiding star, and their hero, and we need more amazing mentors just like you to impact even more girls’ lives.

Starting Tuesday, Nov. 15, invite a friend to start a new Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop, and everyone wins! We’ll email you with more details then.

Plus, when you double the friends, you double your prize —-  $100 for you and a Volunteer Resource Pack (a $50 value) for each friend. Awesome!
Offer runs Nov. 15-Dec. 15, 2016. Questions? We’re here for you. Contact us. Please review official Terms and Conditions.
