We are here to ensure that you are matched with the right opportunities, are provided efficient and effective learning and support, and are recognized for the valuable service you provide on behalf of girls! The first few steps of the process include background screening, interviewing, and placement.
After placement, you’re in a position to assess the skills and competencies Girl Scouts has identified as most important—the ones that will lead to the best results for girls. You surely already possess many of these skills and behaviors and will develop more in the coming year, as you work more closely with girls and with your volunteer support team.
After you’ve evaluated your skills and identified opportunities for growth, you can utilize the learning opportunities offered by the council. You’ll have the opportunity to learn and grow, right along with the girls!
Adults may choose to work directly with the girls or support adult volunteers through various positions. Perhaps working with girls in a troop setting is the option for you. Or, you could volunteer a day here and there, or a month long stretch, give a yearly commitment or help for a week in the summer or fall.
Do you have a unique talent that you would like to share? There is a place for you to volunteer with Girl Scouts of Greater Iowa and we invite you to join us.
As an adult volunteer, you can choose:
- The amount of time you want to spend
- The people you enjoy working with the most, girls or adults
- The skills you want to develop, enhance or share
- The activities you enjoy
