Saturday is Leader’s Day! Thank you, Girl Scout Volunteers!

Thank you, Girl Scouts of Connecticut Volunteers!

Did you know that April is National Volunteer Month, and that this Saturday, April 22, is Leader’s Day? On behalf of Girl Scouts of Connecticut, I want to send a very large message of love and gratitude to the thousands of adults in every zip code of the state who make
Girl Scouting possible for nearly 32,000 Girl Scouts throughout Connecticut! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

In Connecticut, many of our 15,000 plus adult members serve as co-leaders, cookie managers, registrars, trainers, service unit managers, and put on many other hats to ensure that every girl in Connecticut can be go-getters and thrive in every aspect of their lives. Our volunteers are true role models and help girls empower themselves to be leaders and succeed in new experiences like outdoor adventure, community engagement, STEM exploration, and countless other areas.

At Girl Scouts of Connecticut, we continue to work towards providing volunteers the tools and services they need to feel supported and help girls build courage, confidence, and character, and make our world a better place. Our volunteers are true models of leadership and civic responsibility; it is not unusual for a Girl Scout volunteer to dedicate in excess of 200 hours a year to contribute to the Girl Scout Mission. We can’t thank you enough!
We are also excited to say “thank you” to a number of our volunteers this Sunday, April 23, at our Annual Meeting. At our recognitions ceremony, we will acknowledge our members who have served in Girl Scouting for a number of years and who have provided exemplary service to girls across the state. 

So, the next time you see a group of Girl Scouts, make a point to introduce yourself to their leader and all the other volunteers who are guiding and supporting them.  And be sure to say “thanks” for their dedication and commitment to their work.

Thank you, Girl Scout volunteers, for recognizing that girls matter.

Yours in Girl Scouting,
