Unique Opportunities Available at Volunteer Connect!
Typically, when you think of a Girl Scout Volunteer, you think of a Troop Leader. But, there are many other volunteer opportunities available with GSNI! Some include working with girls, and others include connecting a volunteer’s special talents with our areas of need! Also, some available positions do not require a year-long commitment.
Take a look at a few of our current volunteer opportunities:
- Coordinating Council Wide Events – Do you have expertise in event planning or interested in learning more about it? We are looking for people to help with annual events held by GSNI. These events include Thin Mint Sprint, Girl Scouts Forever, and more.
- GSNI Speaker’s Bureau – Do you enjoy public speaking? Did you gain valuable skills through Girl Scouting, or watch your Girl Scout learn about leadership first hand? Are you a proud Girl Scout alumnae, parent, troop leader or community partner? If you believe in the Girl Scout Movement and the benefits it provides for girls, consider joining GSNI’s Speakers Bureau!
- STEM Volunteers – Do you like science technology, engineering, and/or math? GSNI is looking for people to share their STEM passion with Girl Scouts. Why not volunteer to help girls become interested in these exciting fields!
- Plumbing/Carpentry Help – Do you have a skill in plumbing or carpentry? GSNI has facilities throughout the council that could definitely use your help!
- Service Unit Communications Professional – Do you like promoting events, sharing stories with people, and working with people in your service unit? GSNI’s Communications team is looking for someone to act as their liaison at Service Unit meetings and work with Girl Scout Emissaries in their area to help promote and share the stories of GSNI.
This Wednesday, March 13, 2013, Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois is hosting Volunteer Connect! at our Rockford Service Center. We invite you to come and see the opportunities are available. As you know, volunteering is a great way to add to your resume, can help when applying to graduate school, and benefits the community at the same time. We look forward to seeing you this Wednesday!
