As a recruiter, your efforts make it possible for girls in your community to be a Girl Scout. You organize events that get girls and families excited about Girl Scouts, allow them to speak to a person to help start the join process, and help them get ready for the new Girl Scout year. By recruiting adult volunteers and girls, you help us reach our membership goals—something we couldn’t do without you!
Your Year at a Glance
Once you register as a recruiter, we have an online service unit orientation to help you understand your role. Then, each service unit volunteer must complete the position agreement every year, which includes a full position description.
Recruit Volunteers to Help You Recruit
You don’t have to do it alone! Find volunteers within your service unit who can help you make strong connections and represent Girl Scouting.
August–September: Organize Tables at Back to School Events
This is where the magic happens! It’s important to have a proper table set-up and a good estimate of materials (fliers and handouts) needed. See our Recruitment Event Planning and Resources article for tips and materials to help make your recruitment season a success.
September–October: Host a Troop Formation Rally
An optional (but great!) way to promote volunteerism and new troop formation is to host a troop formation rally in your service unit. We encourage you to be creative, have fun, and make it your own. You can use our downloadables and Impressive Print Center for formation rallies too.
See our Recruitment Event Planning and Resources article for some general guidelines.
Throughout the Season: Verify New Registrations
You will work closely with your registrar to verify new registrations and with your service unit manager to help develop your area’s recruitment plan and help meet troop formation goals.
