As a recruiter, you serve as a local Girl Scout champion that organizes within your community to engage with prospective families, provide coverage at recruitment events, and help register girls and adults for membership.
This year is anything but typical. But Girl Scouts can be a consistent and positive force for good in girls’ lives. We’ll be approaching recruitment in new ways and we know our plans need to be flexible. Girl Scouts River Valleys could not do this work without you. You help open doors for girls across our council. Thank you for taking on this important role!
*Promotion lasts until July 31, 2021
