Top 10 Ways to Thank a Girl Scout Volunteer

Our Girl Scout volunteers are amazing, and we can’t wait to thank them for their commitment during National Volunteer Appreciation Week (April 12-18), followed by Girl Scout Leader Day (April 22)! Here are some great ideas to show your thanks to a Girl Scout volunteer:
  1. Personalize this shareable card from Girl Scouts of the USA. Email it or print it out and share it with a Girl Scout volunteer.
  2. Check out our Pinterest board. There are tons of fun and inexpensive gift ideas for showing your appreciation.
  3. Give them some awesome Girl Scout gifts from the GSCCC shops. We have jewelry, apparel, pins and so much more!
  4. Create signs that say “Thank you, Girl Scout Leaders!” and post them in your community. Be sure to get permission before posting!
  5. Host an appreciation dinner for the leaders in your troop. Each girl can bring a different dish to share and swap recipes.
  6. Put together a scrapbook of troop memories from the year and present it to your troop leader.
  7. Shout it out! Girls 13 and up can show volunteers some extra appreciation during National Volunteer Appreciation Week by thanking them on Facebook or Twitter. Don’t forget to include #NVW15!
  8. Have your troop create a giant thank you card that everyone can sign.
  9. Make a financial contribution to Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast in the volunteer’s honor.
  10. Give your Girl Scout leader a bouquet of Daisies in honor of our founder, Juliette Gordon Low, who was called “Daisy” by family and friends.
