Recruiting Girls and Volunteers
It’s never too early to start spreading the word about your new Girl Scout troop. Even while you wait to complete your onboarding and get a troop number, you can talk to your girl’s friends, your neighbors, and other families in the community to make sure that your girl will have a lively troop. As a bonus, more girls usually means more adults who will be happy to help you lead!
In addition to your word of mouth efforts, our Membership Development team will support you with recruiting girls, hosting parent information nights at your girl’s school, and providing customized resources to help you spread the word. Your goal should be to recruit 8 girls and at least 1 additional adult volunteer (who isn't related to you) in about 4-6 weeks—and we'll support you every step of the way.
