Why Volunteer

Every day, Girl Scout volunteers make fun, friendship, and awesome new experiences possible for girls across the country. That's why in April (National Volunteer Month!), and on April 22, the party is especially big, as we celebrate National Girl Scout Leader’s Day. What can we say? We love Girl Scout volunteers the most! With love, patience, and a deep dedication to enriching the lives of girls everywhere, these incredible individuals give their time every day to mentor, inspire, and help girls discover the world around them and the spark inside of them. We are beyond grateful.

Thank YOU for your commitment to the Girl Scouts of New Mexico Trails!

It takes the community to make Girl Scouts successful.  

When Clarissa started working to build up Girl Scouting in Gallup, she knew it would take the community supporting her to make it successful. 

Vikki came to GSNMT looking for a troop for her daughters. Upon finding out there were no openings in her area, she stepped up to lead for her children. She recruited a co-leader and always accepts waiting list girls to make sure they have a Girl Scout home. Rachael, a Gold Awardee herself, now leads a successful multilevel troop in Gallup. She has been instrumental in running events to keep older girls active in Girl Scouts. 

The community has also stepped in to make sure that Girl Scouts had the space and local support to be successful.  Most notably this year was the support of Reverend Lynn Perkins with the Church of the Holy Spirit and Vince Alonzo with the City of Gallup Parks and Recreation Department.

Be the role model she'll always remember.

As a volunteer, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined.

You’ll be their cheerleader, guide, and mentor, helping them develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime. Imagine the smiles, the excitement, the memories made—those are the moments you’ll share at Girl Scouts.

Start the fun now!
