Thank a Girl Scout Leader

Every day, Girl Scout volunteers make fun, friendship and awesome new experiences possible for girls across the country. On April 22, we celebrate Girl Scout Leader's Day to celebrate the powerful and inspiring contributions volunteers make all year long.

Looking for a way to thank the troop leaders in your Girl Scout's life? Get started with some of these ideas:
  1. Think BIG! Use poster board to create a giant thank you card. Have all of the girls in the troop sign it with messages of gratitude.
  2. Say it with flowers. It can be arrangement of fresh flowers, a potted house plant or even a bouquet of origami flowers made by the troop members. 
  3. Give some new Girl Scout gear. Add a new piece of Girl Scout apparel to your leader's collection. From fleece jackets to baseball caps, the GSCCC shops have something for everyone's taste and style.
  4. Get punny. Give a candle with the message "thank you for spreading the light in Girl Scouting." Package a mug with tea and the message "thank you for being a tea-riffic volunteer." Pick up a dozen donuts and let the leader know you "donut know what you would do without her!"
  5. Share your thanks. Post a message on your social media account with all of the reasons that you appreciate your girl's troop leader. Be sure to include #NVW2017 to call out National Volunteer Week, which runs April 23-29.
  6. Send an eCard. Girl Scouts of the USA has prepared some digital cards! Pick your favorite card design, personalize it and send it to your leader's inbox!
Thank you, Girl Scout volunteers!
