Did you get the Volunteer Invite-a-Friend offer email? 
If not, here's the details. All registered volunteers are eligible!

invite a friend

Here's what you need to know:

Volunteers who recruit a friend to start a new K-5 troop will receive $50 to use at GSUSA's official online store. The person you successfully recruit to volunteer will get a new Volunteer Resource Pack, which includes a Girl's Guide,
a Journey set, a badge pack, a tote and pins. And yes, you can recruit two friends to each start a troop (and earn $100
to spend in the online store)! You have from now through December 1, 2014, to earn your reward.​


You'll definitely want to participate in the Volunteer Invite-a-Friend offer, so think about who would love to share in the excitement of Girl Scouting. You could start by...

  • Thinking of someone who would be an EXCELLENT Girl Scout role model and then considering the girls they could encourage to
    become involved.

  • Reaching out to excellent role models in your community -- church members, school volunteers, family and friends -- and sell them
    on the huge impact they could have on girls in the community and the wonderful experiences they'll enjoy as a Girl Scout troop leader.

Here are a few tips to make the process easier for you...

  • Once your new volunteers have decided they want to be involved, make sure to tell them WHERE to find the volunteer application and the background check form so that they can begin the process

  • Fill out this form to let us know that you've invited a friend.

  • Check in with your new volunteers along the way. See where they are in the process. Did they find and complete the application online?
    Are they ready to fill out a membership registration form? 

  • Once the forms are complete and the information is verified, your friend will receive an email to order their Volunteer Resource Packand you'll receive $50 to use at GSUSA's official online store.

  • Start looking for new girls to involve now that we've got a new troop started!

  • Want to read the fine print? It's right here!
