The Girl Scout volunteers who participate, encourage, and support the Girl Scout Movement are the very foundation of our organization. Appreciation and encouragement is expressed throughout the Council in ways that recognizes your dedication and contribution to the mission of Girl Scouting. Showing our appreciation is an every day commitment and Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York greatly appreciations our volunteers who help make Girl Scouting a reality.
We will not be hosting a large council wide event this year, but rather this year GSNENY is looking for new and innovative ways of appreciating our volunteers on a regular basis! Based on our Girl Scout volunteers’ feedback we wish to show recognition and appreciation in ways that will reach the volunteers in the communities where they live and work.
GSNENY is sincerely grateful to our volunteers for contributing to the success of girl scouting and for making a difference.
