Leader Appreciation

Appreciate Your Troop Leader By...

Encouraging Emails
Send your volunteers a heartfelt email thanking them for all they do during the year. Don’t forget to attach a photo of a fun memory from this troop year.


Snail Mail
Everyone loves getting a handwritten note in the mail. Early in the week, write a fun letter to your volunteers and mail them using the good old-fashioned mailbox. Be sure to use some colorful pens and stickers to jazz it up!


Text of Appreciation
One day during the week, send your volunteer a happy text. Feel free to add in your favorite emojis to summarize your appreciation. I mean, a smiley face with jazz hands?! Who wouldn’t love that?


Share the Love
Post a tribute, picture collage or even a video about how much you appreciate your volunteer on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter so they are bombarded with love! Be sure to tag @GirlScoutsATL so we can repost!


Say Hello with Video
Video chat with your volunteer or leave a sweet message, if they don’t answer. You can even suggest a virtual hangout over coffee or baked goods! They’ll love to see your face and be connected

Vicky Moore, March's Volunteer of the Month

Volunteer of the Month

We are proud to highlight Vicky Moore as March's Volunteer of the Month.

"Vicky’s service unit recently had a meeting and one of the topics was summer camp. The SU realized for the last 2 years that getting girls to camp was an issue, as the closest stop to Stone Mountain was N. Druid Hills. As this was not convenient for parents they discussed a possibility of getting a stop added in Stone Mountain. Without hesitation Vicky volunteered to apply to drive the GSGATL van, but what most don’t know is that Vicky serves as a Dekalb County School Bus Driver every day. Because of Vicky’s selfless act of kindness to extend her time and efforts over the summer months, we now have a van driver to assist with safely transporting our Girls to a secure pickup and drop-off location in Stone Mountain to attend Summer Camp!."

"The 817 Crossbridge SU is so VERY grateful to Vicky for this new opportunity for the Girls. "

Vicky is not only a leader, but she’s also a role model for the girls and she’s extended her service in ways that far exceed the Girl Scout Promise and Law. It’s with sincere excitement that we extend this March 2020 Volunteer of the Month Award to Vicky Moore!

Thank you for your service to Girl Scouts.
