GSSEM volunteers are the heartbeat and the core of our organization. Girl Scouting would not exist without their dedication and talents. We couldn’t serve the girls without you, and the untold hours of time that you give define our excellence as a council.

National awards are presented to volunteers who have contributed outstanding service while partnering with girls to implement the Girl Scout Leadership Experience through use of the National Program Portfolio, or who have contributed outstanding service to GSSEM’s mission delivery to girl and adult members. 

Congratulations 2014 National Award Recipients​!
