Girl Scouts of all ages regularly receive awards and badges that recognize their accomplishments and proficiency for learning new skills. Each spring, however, Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana honors hundreds of adult volunteers whose outstanding dedication enables girls to achieve success.

This year, during four special recognition ceremonies, volunteers received special honors from Girl Scouts of the USA and the local council and were recognized for their individual years of service, which together added up to more than 22,456 years of service helping to build girls of courage, confidence and character.

Volunteers are an invaluable resource to Girl Scouts, parents and the community. It is through their dedication that girls tap into their full potential. These volunteers maintain the legacy that is Girl Scouting, and they help develop leaders that will shape the future. In addition to national and council awards, many volunteers were honored with service-unit-level awards.

Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana welcomes adults 18 years of age and older, female and male, who are willing to volunteer their time to help mentor girls through the Girl Scout program. Volunteer opportunities exist for event facilitators, troop leaders and more. Free orientation and training sessions are available.
