New Volunteers

Thank you so much for volunteering. Without the help of our volunteers in the community, many girls would not be able to join the girl scouts this year.

As a new volunteer and leader there is a lot to know. At SU 020 we make it easier for you to find the resources you need to have a great troop. Below is information on how to get started. 

What are the steps to become a leader or co-leader?

  1. APPLY: Complete an online volunteer application and criminal background check at the Apply Today section of the Girl Scouts of Western Washington website. 
  2. WELCOME CHAT: You will be contacted by a volunteer welcome advisor or a member of our staff to set up a welcome chat to provide information on your new position and answer questions.
  3. REGISTER: Get registered as a Girl Scout member.
  4. LEARN: Complete Girl Scouting 101 and a Getting Started course. There are additional learning opportunities you can participate in at your leisure for more resource assistance. See the adult learning progression chart for more information.
  5. BUILD: Your Troop Program Manager (staff member) will be in touch with you and your co-leader to assign you a troop number, instruct you on how to register the troop and open a troop bank account and connect you with your local volunteer support network.
