As summer comes to an end, a new school year begins, including opportunities for local girls and adults to become a Girl Scout.
Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont has opportunities for volunteers who are committed to helping girls develop courage, confidence and character. The two go hand in hand; in other words, without the adult leaders, there is no Girl Scouting.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Girl Scouting — whether the person has an hour, a day, a weekend or more, Girl Scouts has an opportunity that’s right for most adults. No previous Girl Scout experience is necessary, as training and guidance are provided through GSCP2P. To volunteer, one must be at least 18 years of age or older, be a positive role model, and must become a member of the Girl Scouts for $15 per year. Volunteers can lead troops, volunteer with events, serve on committees or help at camp. Girl Scout staff and experienced volunteers provide accessible, practical courses that make every volunteer’s time and efforts more efficient and successful. Girls can also become a member for $15.
Girls and parents are invited to attend an informational Girl Scout events to learn more on Oct. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Yadkin County Park, 6500 Service Road, Yadkinville.
