A Special Thank You to Our Volunteers from GSUSA CEO Sylvia Acevedo


Sylvia Acevedo

Dear Girl Scout Volunteers,

This year, Volunteer Appreciation Month falls during an incredibly challenging time for both our Movement and our country—and, I know, for all of you. Many of you are taking care of others, especially family members and your children’s home-schooling needs, in addition to checking in on friends and loved ones while balancing a reduced work schedule or expanded work demands.

As volunteers, you are the heart and soul of Girl Scouts—especially during these times of great uncertainty when girls are craving encouragement, connection, and community. In good times and bad, you are the everyday heroes who are truly making a difference in the lives of girls—championing, mentoring, and inspiring them to be the leaders and change-makers the world needs.

We are so grateful every day for your dedication and commitment to Girl Scouts. Your belief in the power of girls makes all the difference.

I hope you, your girls, families, and loved ones stay safe and healthy. Happy Volunteer Appreciation Month—and on behalf of the entire Girl Scout Movement, thank you!

Yours in Girl Scouting,

Sylvia
