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.
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 to support 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.
Help Girl Scouts dream big.
Change-makers. Trailblazers. Explorers. We’re talking about Girl
Scouts, of course, but we’re also talking about the people who become
Girl Scout volunteers.
Just like the Girl Scouts they guide, volunteers lead with their
hearts and bring a playful sense of curiosity to everything they do.
Whatever their unique skills or interests, volunteers help Girl Scouts
unlock their limitless potential and make a lasting difference in the world.
See for yourself how empowering it is to be a role model. Look for
Girl Scout volunteer opportunities near you—whether you’re looking for
short-term opportunities or to start a troop of your own, connect with
Girl Scout council and start making an impact.
