It’s Girl Scout Volunteer Appreciation Week – Making a Difference, One Girl at a Time

Thank you volunteers, for making Girl Scouting possible.

Without a paycheck and without any fanfare, you’ve devoted yourself to girl leadership. You put in long hours, stay patient as girls lead their own activities, and bring fun and spirit to everything girls do.

It all pays off. Because girl leadership isn’t only about being class president or volleyball captain. Not every girl will grow up to run a company, be a politician, or manage a science lab, if that’s not her passion. But every girl can be a leader in her own life, so that she—and everyone around her—blossoms into their full potential. A girl leader not only avoids going along with friends who want to skip class or shoplift, but also convinces them not to do it themselves. She supports the aspirations of other girls—no matter how lofty—even if she doesn’t share those aspirations. And she steps in when she sees others making fun of a fellow student who doesn’t find herself among the popular crowd.

That’s leadership, Girl Scout style. That’s making the world better. And that’s the difference you make in the world, one girl at a time.

Thank you.
