Longer Term Volunteering - Global Action Team

Do you love to travel? Do you find other cultures interesting? Do you want to give back to the Girl Scout community? Do you want to help girls, ages 5-18, become engaged with other people and places?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, we want you to join the Girl Scouts Global Action Team. We're looking for volunteers to spread the word about Girl Scout travel and global awareness, to include activities like:

  • Help plan global and travel-themed programs & events (i.e. World Thinking Day, International Day of the Girl, Global Youth Service Day, etc.)
  • Mentor troops travelling internationally
  • Engage with girls and troop leaders about Girl Scout travel opportunities
  • Attend quarterly in-person or webinar meetings (Chicago area)
  • 10-30 hours per year (approximately)



  • All volunteers must be 18 years of age and older
  • Training/orientation provided at time of event
  • An informal interview is required for this position
  • Following the informal interview, volunteers may be required to register as members of Girl Scouts ($25/year), and complete a criminal background check based on their level of involvement.  Both are done on-line.
