Leader Appreciation

Volunteer Appreciation Week

Thank you for everything you do for Girl Scouts

Our volunteers are much more than just volunteers. They're adventure guides, safety supervisors, organizational wizards, loud and proud cheerleaders, they do it all and deserve all the praise.

We are so thankful for every one of our Girl Scout volunteers!

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!

Throw a surprise party

Surprise your troop volunteers with party hats and noisemakers at your next virtual or in-person meeting. Take turns sharing what you appreciate most about them!

Say it with sweets

Create a special treat for your troop leader(s)! Think about:

  • A cake baked in an orange (seriously!)
  • A s’mores care package with marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate
  • A movie night kit with popcorn, a drink, and candy
  • Fruit with a homemade caramel or yogurt dipping sauce
