As we kick-off a new Girl Scout year, we are delighted to have some of the best volunteers in the region. At the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital, We are Family, connected by our mission to help build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. And, we count on every adult, like you, to support this amazing, volunteer organization. Girl Scouts works best when caring adults are involved. If you have time, volunteer. We need every parent to join the family. It is always rewarding to hear from our volunteers and we thought we would share some of their comments with you.

“I saw our girls grow. Where else can a 5th grade Girl Scout Junior troop plan and run a Daisy badge workshop; figure out a budget for a trip and ways to fund it! Over the years our girls attended leadership workshops throughout the Council, at Booz Allen, the Smithsonian and even participated in a Capital One Financial literacy workshop where 3 girls immediately went broke and learned how hard it is to run a household. Not everyone went to everything, and yes there was soccer and dance and swim practice. But in the end, Girl Scouts offers unique opportunities not available elsewhere.”

“Girl Scouts saved me. I was retired and feeling depressed, when I decided to lead a troop for my nieces. They had been through a really traumatic experience.  Girl Scouts has been as therapeutic for them as it has been for me.”
