As a Girl Scout volunteer, you know how rewarding it is to build
girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a
better place. You inspire girls every day and provide them the tools
to empower themselves. By inviting a friend to start a new troop,
you’ll help even more girls prepare for a lifetime of
leadership. Plus, you’ll get $30 for your troop and they’ll get a
$30 GSU gift certificate for their new troop!
