Short-Term Volunteer Opportunities

No time for long-term volunteering commitments? No worries! There's a place for you!


Whether you have time for a one-time event, just a few hours a month, or much more time to share, we need adults of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to serve as positive role models to girls.

As a short-term volunteer, you can:

  • Create a one-day or recurring event/workshop focusing on a specific talent or skill that you have.
  • Become a mentor and or role model for girls.
  • Pitch in to help with an event. 

Our staff will assist you in aligning your activities with the Girl Scout badge program, which focuses on Financial Literacy, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Entrepreneurship, Healthy Living, and more!

Everyone has something to offer. Unleash your inner G.I.R.L. and choose a volunteer role that sparks your interest and best fits you!

Be a Badge Boss!

Earning badges is a great way for a Girl Scout to explore her interests and learn new skills.

Girl Scouts offers MANY badges and we're looking for a few good women (and men) to volunteer to help Girl Scouts earn badges in STEM. You've got workplace skills and Girl Scouts can learn from you in a badge workshop that you facilitate!

Here's how it works:

  • You're the Boss—you design how you'll deliver the program content!
  • Once you've signed up to be a Badge Boss volunteer, choose any one (or more) of our many badges you'd like to help girls earn.
  • Tell us when and where you can facilitate a workshop.
  • Troops will sign up to request a Badge Boss volunteer and we'll take care of placement, scheduling and securing the resources you'll need to facilitate your badge workshop.
  • Prior to your workshop, you'll receive the packet with badge requirements and completion steps.

Get started as a Badge Boss!
Contact Karen Chappell at or 313-870-2538 to get the process started!
