One trait Libby A. from Cumberland County brings to Girl Scouts is her leadership skills. Holding several volunteer positions including Troop Leader, Co-Leader, Area Fall Sale Product Manager, Area Cookie Mom, and Area Delegate (to only name a few!), Libby inspires her Girl Scouts to take action and make a difference in the world.
As a mother of three who enjoys traveling, reading, knitting and other crafts, Libby has been able to adjust her volunteer schedule to fit in with her lifestyle - volunteering more when she has the time and scaling back when she has other activities. However, her passion and dedication to Girl Scouts remains true no matter what happens to be going on!

How did you first get involved with Girl Scouts?
I got involved in Girls Scouts when my older daughter, Emma, joined a Brownie Troop ten years ago.
What is the best part of being a Girl Scout Volunteer?
Watching the girls grow, learn, lead, mature and come out of their shells.
Why is volunteering with Girl Scouts important to you?
It is a great way to empower young girls to be the best they can be and also a great way to meet other outstanding adults in the community.
How do you fit in volunteering with your schedule?
I currently do not work outside of the home so I have a lot of time to devote to volunteering. When I was working, I would devote at least one evening a week for planning meetings and then attending other trainings or leader meetings as needed.
