Volunteer Recognition

IPH_volunteerrecognition

Giving and receiving recognition is an important component of the Volunteer Development System in Girl Scouting. A card from the girls, a handmade gift, an e-mail message or a surprise party are ways to say “thank you” to adults in Girl Scouts. Adult Girl Scouts may also be nominated for Adult Awards throughout the year. Please remember to recognize the adults who are focused on making the Girl Scout experience fun, positive and available to girls and adults everywhere!

Congratulations again everyone on another great Girl Scout year!
