As an environmental educator and school social worker, Girl Scout volunteer Sally S. knows what it takes to create a community where girls can grow and flourish. A co-leader for a Chatham County troop, Sally works hard to deliver the Girl Scout experience and create opportunities for her girls that they never knew were possible!
Her dedication to her troop and to Girl Scouts are just some of the many reasons why she's this week's Volunteer Spotlight. Keep reading to find out why being a Girl Scout volunteer is important to Sally and how she's making a difference in girls' lives.
How did you first get involved with Girl Scouts?
I was a Brownie in first grade.
What is the best part of being a Girl Scout Volunteer?
Helping girls have wonderful experiences that they otherwise would not have and to see their growth. Girl Scouts is the only organization that I know that crosses social class, language, culture and religion.
Why is volunteering with Girl Scouts important to you?
I have had the privilege of seeing girls grow in self-confidence and leadership through Girl Scouts and think that it is an opportunity for girls to connect with something much bigger than their usual worlds.
How do you fit in volunteering with your schedule?
I stay after work and try to schedule the weekend outings as carefully as I can with my family's schedule.
