Safety of girls and volunteers is paramount to Girl Scouts of Western Ohio. Volunteers are required to complete a volunteer application including references and a background check. They may also (depending on their role) be required to attend/complete training. Girl Scouts is a membership organization. All volunteers and girls are required to become members. Membership is $15 per year and is the responsibility of the volunteer.
This short term opportunity runs for six to eight weeks where you are partnered with another volunteer and meet with girls for an hour to an hour and a half, twice a week. We have user friendly curriculum that delve into a variety of topics, ranging from recycling to bullying.
