Volunteer Recognition

GSGLA volunteers are the heartbeat and the core of our organization. Quite literally, Girl Scouting would not exist without the dedication and talents of our volunteers. We couldn’t serve the girls without you, and the untold hours of time that you give define our excellence as a council. In Girl Scouting, we want to recognize and celebrate our volunteers and their service.
