It’s Fun to Be a Leader/Advisor!

Why be a Leader/Advisor?

What did you do today? As a Girl Scout leader/advisor, you'll add meaningful days to girls' lives and to your own. Tackle everything from global warming to election reform. Travel to incredible places. Share your personal passions and create experiences together you'll never forget. All while having fun! Since 1912, Girl Scouts has built girls of "courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place." Girl Scout leaders/advisors are a diverse group of women and men whose expertise, skills, interests, and life experiences nurture each girl's individuality and leadership qualities.

Ready, Set, Go!

Our five-step process makes it easy to get started as a leader/advisor. Whether you choose to work directly or indirectly with girls on a short-term or long-term basis, you will get all the instruction, guidance, and support you need.

Girl Scouts Heart of the Hudson requires all volunteer leaders/advisors to complete an Adult Learning Opportunity for their leadership position before meeting with girls. Simply go online and choose the location and time that works best for you.
