Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles

Volunteers are at the heart of Girl Scouts, bringing to life our mission of building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. 

Short-Term Volunteers: Whether you are available for a one-time event, just a few hours a month, or much more time to share, we have a volunteer role for you! We need adults of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to serve as positive role models to our Girl Scouts.

Cookie Program Support

Cookie season takes place from January to mid-March in Greater Los Angeles!  While our Girl Scouts are learning entrepreneurial skills and creating their own cookie business, we work behind the scenes to ensure they have access to all the support they need.

Our "Cookie Cupboards" house cases of cookies for troop leaders, parents, and caregivers to pick up for their Girl Scouts.  At locations around Greater Los Angeles, we need volunteer support to help us with the important task of counting and loading cases & packages of cookies.  It is a great way to interact with our volunteers & staff, all while staying active.

Don't Miss Out On Our STEAM Takeovers & Day Camps!

GSGLA will host multiple STEAM Takeovers throughout Greater Los Angeles to provide this experience to as many of our Girl Scouts as possible!  

We are looking for volunteers to join us that either work in the STEAM industry or have a passion and knowledge about the topic.  Each day will be broken down into sections of two hours for each topic.  Have ideas on activities, want to help lead Girl Scouts through steps to earning their badge, or simply just want to share your story about your experience in a specific STEAM field?  We would be thrilled to have you join us!  Experts in any STEAM field are welcome and encouraged to volunteer.
