As a military family, you may be no stranger to relocating—and Girl Scouts is along for the ride, every time. No matter where in the country or world your service takes you, we’re at the ready with tried-and-true programming and a supportive sisterhood that allows girls to continue their unique leadership journeys, build new friendships, and enjoy a reliable, safe space of their own. Based on time-tested methods and research-backed programming, our second-to-none Girl Scout Leadership Experience helps girls take the lead in their own lives and in the world.
Guided by supportive volunteers – including at military outposts globally – Girl Scouts try new things, hone a range of skills, and are free to just be themselves. They develop and unleash their full leadership potential through age-appropriate experiences that enable them to discover their passions, connect with others in a multicultural environment, and take action to help others.
Is your family’s service taking you outside the U.S.? Through USA Girl Scouts Overseas, Girl Scouting is available to girls in military, foreign service, and American expat families and to girls at international schools around the world. An operating unit of Girl Scouts of the USA, USA Girl Scouts Overseas provides a sense of security and stability as families transition to new locations, allowing members to continue their Girl Scouts journeys as they build new friendships and learn about other cultures – wherever they go.
No matter your location, volunteering with Girl Scouts is a great way to connect with your community and make a meaningful difference in girls’ lives—and to support girls as they make a difference in the world! From leading a Girl Scout troop to helping with cookie sales and events, volunteers have many opportunities to join in the fun of Girl Scouting. Whether you can give a few hours, weeks, months, or more (participation is flexible!), as a Girl Scout volunteer you’ll strengthen your leadership skills, earn community service hours, and set girls up for a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
