GSGATL believes every volunteer should be recognized for his or her
contributions to building girls of courage, confidence and character,
who make the world a better place. GSGATL’s volunteer recognition
program is designed to offer formal and informal recognition.
GSGATL, in recognition of its responsibility to its volunteers, its
staff, and the girls it serves, and in keeping with Girl Scouts of the
USA’s (GSUSA) emphasis on pluralism, reaffirms its policy to ensure
fair and equal treatment in all its practices to all persons,
regardless of race, color, religion, ethnicity, age, socio-economic
status, disability or national origin.
Benefits and services to volunteers may include training and other
learning opportunities, support from GSGATL staff and other council
volunteers, GSUSA and GSGATL publications and Web site, tools for
recording volunteer experiences, awards and recognitions, and
GSGATL’s volunteer recognition program is designed to be a valuable
component of the volunteer support system.
