WHY GIRL SCOUTS?
This is a great place for girls to develop skills, talents and friendships that will last a lifetime! The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is designed to challenge and prepare girls for their future. Girl Scouting gives girls three keys to leadership: Discover, Connect, Take Action. Girls learn about leadership, as they discover new talents, skills, and strengths, connect with others, and take action in their communities. They make friends and memories that will last throughout their lives.
PARENTS, JOIN THE FUN!
Adults who volunteer with Girl Scouts are committed to helping every girl discover their unique talents and abilities in a safe and nurturing environment. Learn more about how both you and your daughter can be part of Girl Scouts. Parents and other caring adult volunteers can contribute in a variety of ways, such as helping girls organize service projects, teaching girls about your interests and hobbies, chaperoning trips and camp-outs and much more. Training and support is free and easy to get involved in. Girls whose parents are actively involved in their daughter’s Girl Scout experience are more likely to earn leadership awards and to attend regional and national Girl Scout opportunities –- simply because they are better informed! Here are some ways you can get involved:
Become a Troop Leader: Troop 3480 is still looking for Brownie and Junior troop leaders. Troop leaders help plan the meetings & activities and work with the girls on achieving their goals.
Volunteer as a Troop Parent: We need 1-2 parents per level to become registered volunteers with GSNC. These parents will not be responsible for planning the meetings, but will assist troop leaders during the meeting and field trips. Troop Parents may be asked to make phone calls or help with administrative tasks or arts & crafts during meetings.
Step Forward and Be a Snack Parent: We are still looking for a parent to be responsible for organizing snacks for all of the levels.
Lend a Hand When You Can: Parents are always welcome to pitch in. If you want to help organize a field trip or have a skill to contribute please inform one of the troop leaders.
