Find out ways YOU can volunteer!

If you're an adult age 18 or older, you can!  We're seeking volunteers who represent our community's diversity - women, men, young adults, older girls, and people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, including our beloved alumnae.

Join our Mailing List!There are many exciting and flexible pathways through which adults can participate in Girl Scouting.  Yes, volunteers can lead a Troop, but they can also develop and participate in training activities, maintain camps, manage data, design marketing pieces, and share their skills with girls in everything from running a business to exploring science careers.

If you would like to volunteer for Girl Scouts of Connecticut but are unable to commit to a regular schedule, we have a volunteer pathway that will fit your available time.   So, whether it's once a month, weekends, or during a particular time of year, discover how you can make a difference in the life of a girl.

Today, more than ever before, girls need a trusted adult role model to relate to as they journey into adulthood.

Don't wait, start empowering the leaders of tomorrow today!
