Girl Scouts River Valleys’ council is divided into 144 Service Units led by experienced, dedicated volunteers who support and serve Girl Scouts, troops, and volunteers in their area and lead local recruitment efforts.
What Service Units Do
Service Unit volunteers meet throughout the year to share ideas, receive training, and talk about important announcements. They also organize events like community-wide service projects, summer day camps, cookie rallies, celebrations, ceremonies and more!
Around summertime, many Service Unit teams meet to start planning for the next year. They fill open Service Unit roles, create goals and develop an event and meeting schedule for the upcoming year. To help in the planning process and get the most out of your time, we recommend using the Service Unit Planning & Evaluation Packet as your guide and customize it for your Service Unit as needed. After connecting with your team, anyone on the team can complete the Service Unit Planning Evaluation Form to share with your Volunteer Engagement Coordinator. They can support you along the way and answer your questions.
