Girl Scout pathways allow volunteers to participate in Girl Scouting in multiple ways. Some adults (such as alumnae and parents) register because they want to belong to the organization. The majority of adults, however, register with the intent to volunteer. GSUSA is prioritizing the work related to these members, because volunteers must be in place to help girls belong in the ways that interest them. We’ve worked to develop initial volunteer position descriptions for these direct-service roles, but recognize that additional descriptions must be developed for indirect service volunteers, and the existing descriptions must be further tested. A sample list of volunteer positions and opportunities for each pathway follows: Work directly with girls:

  • Camp counselor
  • Camp director
  • Camp program director
  • Event and series program coordinator
  • Lead trip advisor/trip advisor
  • Troop leader/troop helper

Work indirectly with girls by providing support to adults who work directly with girls:

  • Events and series program liaison
  • Travel pathway committee member
  • Administrative/clerical work
  • Board or committee member
  • Product sales manager
