We are so thankful for our nearly 2,500 volunteers who act as troop leaders, Girl Scout Cookie Chairs, and in a variety of other time-consuming and effort-demanding positions that enable local girls to fully participate in the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. These exceptional people generously donate their time and talent free of charge to prepare the country's next generation of female leaders!


We are currently seeking award nominations for worthy Girl Scout volunteers. If you've had a positive experience with a Girl Scout troop leader or any Girl Scout volunteer, visit to nominate them for an award. Awards include Volunteer of Excellence, Appreciation Pin, Honor Pin, Thanks Badge, Thanks Badge II, President's Award, and Hall of Fame Award. New this year, all nominations—with the exception of Hall of Fame—can be submitted via an easy, online form.
