It's always the right time to make a difference—and now is the perfect time to do that as a Girl Scout volunteer. Discover how good it feels to help Girl Scouts find their voice.
Just by being yourself, you can be a person that girls can count on—the one who listens intently, who encourages them to chase their goals, who keeps them laughing, and who helps them feel confident in who they are. Together, you’ll build a community where every girl is celebrated and valued.
You don't have to have a child of your own to get involved; all you need is a passion for mentoring the next generation of leaders. Girl Scouts of Orange County is ready to get you started!

Next, you will provide some information about you and pay the annual national membership dues of $25.
Annual dues support the national Girl Scouts organization, covers you under our liability insurance, and supports the research and program development our local council relies upon.
The council service fee enables local councils to provide additional volunteer support and ensure girls receive the best leadership opportunities available.
All Volunteers are required to do a name-based background check. Some roles also require a fingerprint-based background check in addition to the name-based background check. Please review Fingerprint FAQ for further information on requirements for volunteers working with youth and managing finances.
Once you have chosen a volunteer opportunity, you will receive an email, with further instructions on how to complete the background check process. Please note, this may take a few days to process.
This video will provide you with a brief overview of our organization, mission and the tools you will be using as a volunteer.
