As a leader, you’ll guide girls through planning fun activities, giving back to your community, and managing the operations of the Girl Scout troop. It’s a totally rewarding experience that gives back as much as you give to it!

Here's how to get started:

Girls’ safety is our number one priority; therefore, all volunteers must submit a Volunteer Application, a Background Check Authorization, and provide a list of references. Start your application process here.
Once your application is processed and cleared, you will receive a Volunteer Appointment Letter and a Volunteer Agreement which you will sign and return to your nearest regional center.

The application process is complete once you register as an adult member ($25)* and you are appointed as a leader. *Financial assistance is available for Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan membership fees.

You’re a stronger leader with training. Don’t miss this important step that helps ensure the girls in your troop have a safe, fun, and engaging Girl Scout experience.
