Anna Maria Chavez says Thanks

  Yesterday marked the first day of Volunteer Appreciation Week, so first and foremost, I want to thank all of our wonderful adult volunteers. To me, this is one of the most important weeks on the Girl Scout calendar because the dedicated service of nearly 890,000 volunteers is one of the things that make Girl Scouting the best leadership experience for girls.
  I often tell people that Girl Scouts is volunteer driven and girl led. Volunteers serving as role models and mentors for our girls has been central to Girl Scouting from the very beginning, when Juliette Gordon Low brought together those 18 girls in Savannah, Georgia. It is our adult volunteers who bring the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to life, who make Girl Scouting vivid and real for our girls. It’s impossible to imagine any community without Girl Scouts, and it’s hard to imagine any Girl Scout community without adult volunteers.
  Our volunteers come from every walk of life. They’re your neighbors, your colleagues at work, your family members and friends. And they’re great! I want to express my deepest gratitude to each and every one of them who give of their time, their energy, and their knowledge and experience to serve our girls. If you know of a Girl Scout volunteer, take the time during Girl Scout Volunteer Appreciation Week to tell them how much you appreciate their service.
