Lead with Fun

A year filled with exciting adventures for a girl happens when one role model shows her she can accomplish more than she ever imagined in Girl Scouts.

That role model is one of the 6,000 adult volunteers in western Pennsylvania who make Girl Scouting possible for more than 34,000 girls. Without our volunteers, girls wouldn’t have the opportunity to make new friends and try new things through Girl Scouts.

For the upcoming school year, some of those new things can include:

donning a helmet and hooking on to a personal pulley system to climb high into the branches of century-old oak trees.

learning self-defense strategies and crime-prevention tips.

conquering the climbing tower and soaring down the zip line.

skill-building with a college women’s basketball team.

enjoying a winter ride on a dog sled.

exploring the fun and challenges of careers in engineering.

Volunteers are needed in the Warren area to help girls connect with exciting adventures like these.

Many Girl Scout volunteers lead troops, but mentors, coaches, camp volunteers, program partners and members of the business community all play an important role in improving girls’ lives through Girl Scouts.

“Our volunteers make a world of difference in the lives of girls,” said Jennifer Fox-Riggin, Manager, Membership and Community Development at Girl Scouts Western Pennsylvania. “They are fun, inspiring and positive role models that show girls anything is possible.”

Girls aren’t the only ones who benefit from Girl Scouts. Girl Scouting enriches the lives of volunteers as well. Volunteers make new friends, learn new things, and lead active lives through Girl Scouting.

Today’s Girl Scouts offers many flexible volunteer opportunities. No matter how much time volunteers can spare even if it’s only a few hours they have a direct effect on girls’ leadership development.

Girl Scout Founder Juliette Gordon Low said, “The work of today is the history of tomorrow, and we are its makers.” Girl Scout volunteers are making history by supporting the girls who will someday change the world.
