How Can I Help?
Your Time, Your Life
Your calendar is full. Your to-do list is jam-packed. You want to help out, but it’s almost impossible to find the time. Don’t panic. You don’t have to give up your life to support your girl.
Because there are only so many hours in a day, girls, along with their parents and guardians, have to balance many growing and diverging interests, commitments and responsibilities. You’ll be surprised at how flexible Girl Scouting is today. You can choose how little or how much time and energy you can give — an hour, a day, or maybe just a “thank you” to your Girl Scout’s troop or group leader.
Customize Your Role
From being the “head cheerleader” who encourages and supports her daughter in Girl Scouting, from accompanying the girls on a field trip to a local museum, to helping raise the funds and traveling with a group to a Girl Scout World Center in India, you can use your skills and explore your interests. Here are a few of the many ways you can support your Girl Scout:
- Suggest a fun day trip
- Set up a phone tree
- Coordinate transportation for an outing
- Be a guest speaker
- Teach girls a new skill
- Design a troop photo album or website
- Join girls on a field trip
- Learn first aid at a Girl Scout council-sponsored training session so that you can support girls on their outings
- Become an advocate in your community for Girl Scouting
- Tell your girl you’re proud of her
