Council Service Opportunities

Council service opportunities are a chance to give back to GSCNC in many ways.  They also offer girls the chance to meet and work with council staff and resource volunteers. Check this page frequently, as new opportunities arise all the time!


Join the GSCNC Board of Directors

Are you a Girl Scout Senior or Ambassador in 9th-11th grade?Would you like to lend your time and talents to GSCNC?

Then you should consider applying for the GSCNC Board of Directors. The Board of Directors makes policy, approves finances, interacts with the community, works with the Executive Director and sets the long-range plans for our council.

Each year, two teens are selected as members of the Board of Directors and make a one-year commitment for the school year. Members must be willing and able to participate in six Board meetings held at the DC council office, as well as an orientation in September and the GSCNC Annual Meeting in April. Members must be 14 or older.

Sudden Service - Girl Scout Volunteers For Ceremonial Events And Special Activities

Each year GSCNC receives requests from local and national organizations and governmental agencies for Girl Scouts to perform duties such as participating in flag ceremonies, helping at receptions, ushering at special events and serving as race marshals.  The Sudden Service program was formed to respond to last minute requests for a specific number of girls, a particular age group or a diverse group of girls who are representative of the GSCNC membership. If your troop is available to do things on short notice-from one day to one month-please complete the form available online at More information about Sudden Service can be found at:


Join the SingAlong Service

The SingAlong Service is a song-leading group for Girl Scouts in grades 9-12 and adults. SingAlong Service members give song workshops for a minimum of 35 participants who want to learn and practice songs. Workshops may be part of a troop/service unit event, campout, Thinking Day, Bridging or special ceremony, or offer training at a service unit meeting. A SingAlong Service Coordinator contacts members with dates for requests. Take part as your schedule permits. Members also get together twice a year at the Sing Into Weekends with service members and other singers to share and learn songs from each other. If you love to sing and would like to join the SingAlong Service as singer or instrumentalist, please complete the SingAlong Service Application form and send it in.
