Girl Scouting offers a variety of flexible opportunities for volunteers. Adults are needed to serve as mentors, advisers and short-term volunteers. Work directly with the girls or lend a hand behind the scenes. Whether you help out regularly, occasionally or only for a special event, you can share your personal passions and create experiences that will change the life of a girl in your community.

The Girl Scout Council of Colonial Coast serves more than 16,000 girls in kindergarten through 12th grade and more than 5,000 adult volunteers in southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina. The organization relies on adult volunteers who give their time and talents to make a difference in the lives of the girls. For more information, visit www.gsccc.org or call 1-800-77SCOUT.
