Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama seeking volunteers


Special to the
Opelika Observer

Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama (GSSA) is now seeking volunteers to help build the go-getters, innovators, risk-takers, and leaders of tomorrow.
Girl Scouts is a one-of-a-kind, proven leadership development program that pairs girls with strong, caring female role models and mentors who prepare them to take the lead from age five to 18 and into adulthood.
“To create more female leaders, we need to start young and make sure today’s girls are acquiring the courage, confidence, character, and other skills they need to take the reins of leadership in the 21st century,” said Karlyn Edmonds, Chief Executive Officer of GSSA. “We cannot do this without the community stepping up to help us build the next generation of female leadership.”
At Girl Scouts there is volunteer opportunities for everyone, from troop roles to role models. Whether you can give a day, a few weeks, or the whole year, it all starts with the volunteers.
“As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to see girls take the lead in a range of activities−from kayaking, archery, and camping, to coding, robotics, and financial literacy,” said GSSA volunteer Sue Williams. “The impact, memories, and excitement you’ll gain from becoming a volunteer is unimaginable.”
Adult volunteers are vital for the survival of continuing the best leadership experience for girls in the world. For more information on how to volunteer or become a Girl Scout, visit or call 800-239-6636.
