Thank you for creating a supportive environment that encourages
successful futures for all girls!
Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day is a day of appreciation for
adult volunteers in Girl Scouting held on April 22 every year. Girl
Scouts is an outstanding leadership organization for girls due to the
exceptional effort put forward by our volunteers. Join us in
celebrating all our wonderful adult volunteers during National
Volunteer Month and as we give a special shout out to Girl Scout
Leaders on Leader Appreciation Day.
Although volunteers are always appreciated, it is during these
special days that we take the time to acknowledge that our adult
volunteers are our neighborhood heroes and the heart and soul of the
Girl Scouts of Orange County organization. We encourage the girls,
their families and service unit/Girl Scout communities to plan special
gestures to show appreciation for the adult Girl Scout volunteers in
Here are a few ways you can celebrate your volunteer crew:
All month long, show your favorite Girl Scout volunteers how much
they mean to you with a straight-from-the-heart, personalized
ecard, one for younger girls (English or Spanish) and one for older girls (English or Spanish). They’ll love hearing how they’ve made a
difference in your life!
Looking to get everyone in on the fun? Consider sending a digital
group thank-you via Kudoboard! Each troop member and her family
can share a message, photo, or video on your volunteer’s thank-you
board. Kudoboard has been officially licensed for a limited time by
Girl Scouts of the USA .

Informal rewards are day-to-day ways to say “thank you” to
volunteers—they are intangible benefits and heartfelt displays of
recognition. These sincere expressions of appreciation are based on
specific contributions and are given in a timely manner. Informal
recognition is powerful and effective, because volunteers feel valued
by a personal touch. Examples of meaningful informal rewards include:
