Recognition is one of the most powerful tools to retain volunteers. When volunteers know their time and energy are appreciated and know they are valuable assets to Girl Scouts, they commit themselves to the organization.
Recognition coordinators know the most meaningful recognition comes from peers, and find creative, fun ways to say thank you to the volunteers in their area. Utilizing the Adult Recognitions in Girl Scouting Guide and a checklist, the recognition coordinator will derive satisfaction from providing volunteers with the recognition they deserve.
