Thank you for your interest in being a volunteer with the Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan (GSSEM). Girl Scouts is the premier leadership development program for girls and is a membership organization with over 3.2 million girl and adult members worldwide.
GSSEM offers a variety of flexible volunteer options to make it easy for busy adults to participate, based upon their interests, skills, and time availability. Some volunteers facilitate our Girl Scout Leadership Experience by serving as role models and mentors working directly with girls, while other volunteers prefer to assist or support other adults. Staff and peer coaches provide the program, materials, training, and ongoing support to new volunteers.

Your prior conviction does not bar you from employment, but may be considered in relation to job requirements.
I am applying for a volunteer position in Girl Scouting for which there is no monetary compensation. Because many of our volunteer roles require interaction with children or managing money, Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan performs background checks. I understand that the purpose for which the information is gathered by Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan is to evaluate the suitability of potential volunteers with Girl Scouts.
I hereby authorize Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan to complete the required background checks. If appointed, I agree to observe all Girl Scout policies, procedures, safety checkpoints, or guidelines.
*In the selection of volunteers, there shall be no discrimination against an otherwise qualified individual on the basis of race, color, ethnicity, sex, religion, creed, national origin, socioeconomic status, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, or on any other basis prohibited by federal, state, or local law.
Thank you for volunteering for Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan. We appreciate the contribution you have made to girls in southeastern Michigan.
