Remember the people and places that helped you become the person you are today? Young people in your community are searching for clues about who they are and who they can become. Why not be part of the search? Click for information about becoming a volunteer.

Who do you want the girl in your life to become? Whether she is five or 17, you want her to become self-confident, strong, and compassionate.

You want her to respect herself and others, make good decisions, be open to new challenges, and use her skills and talents to make her world a better place.

You want her to build lasting friendships, be a leader, and put her values into practice in her everyday life. You want her to become her best self.

Social pressure, image issues, and uncertain security—there are so many potential hurdles to a girl’s well-being. For nearly 100 years, Girl Scouts has remained relevant by helping girls find their place in the world and realize their full potential.

How You Can Support Your Girl Scout

Your calendar is full. Your to-do list is jam-packed. You want to help out, but it's almost impossible to find the time. Don't panic. You don't have to give up your life to be a part of Girl Scouting!

There are only so many hours in a day, so girls and their parents or guardians have to balance many growing and diverging interests, commitments, and responsibilities. That’s why Girl Scouting today is more flexible than ever.  You can choose how little or how much time and energy you can give – a month, a week, a day, an hour.

Customize Your Role

From being the "head cheerleader" who encourages and supports her daughter in Girl Scouting, to accompanying the girls on a field trip to a local museum, to helping raise the funds and traveling with a group to a Girl Scout World Center in India, you can use your skills and explore your own interests through Girl Scouting, too.  Here are a few of the many ways you can support your Girl Scout:

• Suggest a fun day trip
• Set up a phone tree
• Coordinate transportation for an outing
• Be a guest speaker
• Teach girls a new skill
• Design a troop photo album or website
• Join girls on a field trip
• Become an advocate in your community for Girl Scouting
• Tell your girl you're proud of her
