Volunteer with a Troop


What is a Troop?

A troop is a group of Girl Scouts who gather weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Adult volunteers guide troops as youth members select exciting hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each other on. See the troop volunteer role descriptions below to see how you can get involved with a local troop!
