Adult Recognitions


Adult Recognitions and Awards

We have amazing, out-of-this-world volunteers serving girls across our 22 counties. Because of our volunteers, our girls reach for the stars and learn that being a Girl Scout is awesome. To recognize this dedication and service, there are several ways parents, girls, and fellow volunteers can say thank you!


Volunteer Spotlight

Shine the spotlight on a Girl Scout volunteer! Email our Customer Care team with a volunteer who deserves to be recognized and we'll do the rest! Volunteer Spotlights are featured on our social media channels and are a fantastic way to publicly applaud volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of our girl and adult members. Be sure to use the subject line “Volunteer Spotlight.”
