Imagine what an impact you could have on a teen or tween girl as you empower her to learn new skills and set goals, all while having fun and making new connections! Girl Scouts Nation's Capital is hosting our annual Encuentro leadership conference as a one-day virtual event for girls in grades 6-12.
Girls will learn about how the media affects their and their community's perspective, dive into their sense of beauty and how society defines beauty, learn about how they can begin to work on financial independence and make new friends while networking with Latina leaders.
We are looking for volunteers who are bilingual in Spanish to assist in virtual workshops using provided scripts in Zoom breakout groups. Volunteers will receive brief training before the conference via webinar. No advanced skills required - just be willing to help the girls learn!

Girl Scouting builds girls of courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place. We seek to accomplish this by providing girls opportunities to develop their potential and have fun with their peers in a supportive, all-girl setting.
Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent organization for girls with a current membership of 3.6 million girls and adults. Volunteers use their expertise, skills, interests, and life experience to shape fun and enriching leadership experiences for girls, and inspire them to reach their personal best. Volunteers help council staff facilitate the New Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls through exciting program opportunities: leadership/self-esteem, financial literacy, travel, health/wellness, science, technology, engineering, and math. Volunteers choose from several flexible Pathways (the ways that girls and adults join Girl Scouting) that fit their lifestyles, including short-term or long-term service working either directly or indirectly with girls, and they can participate regionally, nationally, and internationally.
