Leader Feature: Volunteer Appreciation
Every month we will have ideas, tips, and resources for you to use during troop meetings or as part of your Girl Scout year.
April is National Volunteer Appreciation month and April 22nd is Girl Scout Leader's Day - it's time to celebrate the Girl Scout volunteers in your life. We know, you

We know how hard you work each and every month to provide the Girl Scout experience for girls in your service unit and troop. Below we include some ideas for how to thank the parent volunteers in your troop.

- Post one of these banners or one of these graphics on the volunteer's social media page:
