Recognitions & Appreciation

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
