All Girl Scout volunteers are very important people, but we're looking for a new kind of V.I.P. Everything is more fun with a friend, so Volunteer-In-Pairs! Beginning now, through the end of the Girl Scout year, when you recruit a NEW adult to volunteer with your troop or service unit, we'll give you a pair of Girl Scout ear-buds AND an iTunes gift card.


More volunteers help to serve Kansas girls better - and that's music to everyone's ears! Click here for more.
