“Volunteers are the only human being on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another.” Erma Bombeck
The ultimate responsibility for Girl Scouting rests with volunteers. Recognizing and expressing our thanks to them is one of the most important things we can do. There are many ways to show our appreciation – from giving them a warm thank you to nominating an individual for a council or national award. Volunteers are enthusiastic only as long as they derive satisfaction from what they are doing. Part of this satisfaction can come from the recognition they receive for a job well done.
Our council values the contributions of volunteers toward our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. The recognition process showcases the volunteers who give so much of themselves to our mission.
