Who to Consider
- Service Unit Teams
We have amazing, out-of-this-world volunteers serving girls across our 41 counties. Because of you, our girls reach for the stars and learn that being a Girl Scout is awesome. To recognize this dedication and service, there are several ways parents, girls, and fellow volunteers can say thank you! Preview our Nomination and Endorsement form here to know what to expect before nominating a volunteer.
Council level adult awards and recognitions honor our volunteers for their outstanding service and contributions to our council, girls, and the entire Girl Scout Movement. Council-level adult recognitions and awards formally honor the outstanding contributions and exemplary years of service of our volunteers to the council and the Girl Scout Movement.
Nominations may be submitted by a volunteer’s peers, service unit team members, council staff, and even the girls themselves! The Adult Recognitions Task Group reviews all nominations and endorsements and selects each year’s award recipients from among the nominations received. The awards are then presented during the Adult Award and Recognitions Luncheon following the Annual Meeting in March.
How it Works
Council nominations and endorsements for the 2020-21 Adult Awards and Recognitions Luncheon are now open! For consideration, all packets must be complete with one nomination and two endorsements. Nominations and endorsements are due October 18, 2021.
Area level awards formally recognize volunteers at the local level and are presented at area appreciation events or celebrations. Area awards are peer nominated, so the number of nominees relies heavily on nominations and endorsements from co-leaders, volunteers, or service unit team members. Nominations reflect the individual’s service and contributions during the current program year.
The Area Level Nomination Award process is as follows:
ENCORE! GS-NCCP’s Peer Appreciation Program
Surprise a fellow Girl Scout volunteer with our online ENCORE! recognition program! At Girl Scouts, our volunteers help us Plant Hope for the Future. Send a leaf of thanks to cheer on your peers and recognize a job well done! When you thank a volunteer, you will add a leaf to the Tree of Thanks.
Shine the spotlight on a Girl Scout volunteer! Email our Volunteer Services team with a volunteer who deserves to be recognized and we'll do the rest! Volunteer Spotlights are featured on our social media channels and are a fantastic way to publicly applaud volunteers who are making a difference in the lives of our girl and adult members.
President's Volunteer Service Award
Girl Scouts - North Carolina Coastal Pines is thrilled to partner with Points of Light, the President's Volunteer Service Award (PVSA) agency, to bring this program to life for our girls and volunteers. This recognition sets our girls and volunteers apart and is a tremendous honor. By sharing your time and talents with others, you lead by example and encourage others to make the world a better place.
Honor Your Troop Leader
Behind every Girl Scout is a great Girl Scout Leader! Show your appreciation for adult leadership and invest in girls by making a donation in your troop leader’s name! Your contribution will go towards building girls of courage, confidence, and character. Your honoree will be notified of your gift via a personalized card from the council.
Girl Scouts-North Carolina Coastal Pines Hall of Fame
There is no way to completely express our thanks and appreciation to our many amazing volunteers who serve to make the Girl Scout experience possible, which is why we are recognizing them in our Council Hall of Fame, a listing of our distinguished honorees since 2008.
