|Learning about volunteering with |
purpose from Latrece McKnight-Williams
“Be passionate, be unique, be optimistic,” Williams-McKnight said. “With your passion comes your purpose, and I know that all of you are passionate about making a difference in the lives of girls.”
Following the keynote address, volunteers took part in quick takes, or interactive learning experiences, where they found new activities to share with girls and discovered new volunteer resources. They also participated in workshops that covered topics ranging from social media to managing projects and planning events. By the end of the weekend, staff and volunteers alike felt more energized and full of ideas to bring back to their Girl Scout troops.

Girl Scout volunteers are always needed to introduce girls to new experience that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. Girl Scout volunteers are cheerleaders, guides and mentors that help girls develop skills and confidence that will last them a lifetime.
