Happy National Volunteer Week to Our Amazing Volunteers!


In celebration of National Volunteer Week, here are a few messages from our CEO and staff ...


Dear Girl Scouts of Western Washington Volunteers,

Even though we celebrate National Volunteer Week every April, I’m always reminded of the fact that one week is nowhere near long enough to really say “thank you” to talented volunteers who make Girl Scouts possible across western Washington!

Your tireless energy, your fierce dedication, your no-limits kindness—every ounce of effort you give to your girls helps fill them with confidence each day. No matter what your volunteer role is within Girl Scouts, your work supports girls as they grow into leaders, learn more about themselves, and make their world a better place.

As I move around the council and talk with many of you, I hear both about the challenges you face and the sheer joy you experience in volunteering with your girls. I’m in awe of the work you’re doing, helping them gain skills they’ll have for the rest of their lives.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you do and Happy National Volunteer Week!


Megan Ferland
Chief Executive Officer
Girl Scouts of Western Washington


From all the Girl Scouts of Western Washington staff, “Thank you!”
