Wednesday, August 13, 2008 • Posted August 13, 2008

Austin, Texas, August 5—The Girl Scouts of Central Texas has opportunities for volunteers who are committed to helping girls develop courage, confidence and character.

Adult volunteers are a vital component to Girl Scouting as they act as role models, leaders and mentors to girls. Without passionate volunteers, Girl Scout programs cannot reach their full potential.

Volunteer opportunities are available in great variety. For those who wish to work directly with girls, troop leader and co-leader positions exist. These volunteers lead a troop of girls in regular activities, encouraging the girls to play an age-appropriate role in planning and ensuring that the troop benefits from Girl Scout programming. Other volunteer opportunities, including those with flexible schedules and indirect service to girls, are available at the service unit or council level.
