The Volunteer Appreciation Awards in Girl Scouts acknowledge volunteers who provide service above and beyond what is expected.
Girl Scouts of Suffolk County is fortunate to have more than 2,500 Adult Volunteers. These volunteers give themselves and their time to the Girl Scout Movement, and, in turn, reap the reward of helping girls become the strong, confident leaders of tomorrow. Their dedication emphasizes the qualities that Girl Scouts value.
The criteria for these awards are established either by GSUSA or GSSC and focus on leadership, implementation of goals, acceptance of responsibility, and consistent follow-through. In addition to specific award criteria, nominated candidates must meet the following eligibility requirements to receive recognition:
- Currently registered Adult Girl Scout
- An active member of Girl Scouts of Suffolk County
- Volunteer in good standing as defined by the Council
- Nomination forms and letters of reference submitted by the deadline
Our Volunteer Appreciation Awards Guide (Updated version coming soon!) will provide information on award criteria, nomination and review process, and responsibilities for award purchase.
