First Lady Michelle Obama Highlights Importance of Girl Scout Volunteers

You know that feeling when one day is over and you can’t wait for the next one to start? When you’re lying in bed and you’re so excited thinking about tomorrow that you can almost see it floating by on the ceiling? That’s the feeling girls get in Girl Scouting.

We want every girl to be so excited about the adventure she’ll have with us that she can hardly wait for it, because she knows she can do anything she sets her mind to. That feeling starts with parents who encourage their daughters, and volunteers who are role models.

Girl Scouting is dedicating the week of September 30-October 6 as National Girl Scout Recruitment week. We are excited to announce that First Lady Michelle Obama has recorded an online video calling upon moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles or anyone else looking to help girls in our community reach their full potential to become a Girl Scout volunteer.

We need your help to spread the word and connect with as many potential volunteers as possible. Share the video. Go to our Facebook page and share the link with your friends, retweet to all your friends, or forward this to five of your friends, family or neighbors and encourage them to go to www.girlscouts.org find out how they can become a Girl Scout volunteer.

Whether 5 or 55, doing something different, out of the ordinary, unexpected, new, makes life more exciting, keeps people engaged-and wanting more. From the girls who want to teach younger girls a new skill, to the adults who want to make a big impact on a little girl’s life, everybody desires to share something new, over and over again.

I can’t wait to see what you will do to help her dream bigger and go further than she ever imagined.

Yours in Girl Scouting,

Anne Soots
Chief Executive Officer
