Girl Scouts San Diego

GS Logo Large

Our outreach program was developed to give all girls the opportunity to experience Girl Scouting. Our mission is to empower girls with the self-confidence to make positive health, education and career decisions. Ninety-two percent of our girls are from diverse racial/ethnic backgrounds.

As a Girl Scout Outreach (GSO) Volunteer, you’ll work alongside Girl Scout staff by going into areas with few or no volunteer-led Girl Scout troops and provide quality programming and opportunities. You will be introducing Girl Scouting to first generation families and others who have never experienced it! This role is great for college students and young, energetic people who can keep up with school groups.

Volunteer opportunities are flexible and based on your availability; after onboarding, you will have access to the Girl Scout Outreach weekly schedule.

There is a minimum 4-session commitment, approximately 2-3 hours per session; flexible; frequency based on volunteer schedule.
