Girl Scouts of Kentucky looking for a few good volunteers

Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road is looking for volunteers to serve as troop leaders for girls throughout Kentucky who are on waiting lists or who want to become Girl Scouts.

“We help girls reach their full potential, contribute to their community, and have fun while learning valuable skills they will use throughout their lives. More parents are recognizing how Girl Scouting can positively affect their girl’s future. We are constantly searching for and training new volunteers to mentor and lead girls,” said Ruby Webster, director of youth services for Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road. “Whether a person has time to give once a week or once a year, we have volunteer opportunities that will make a lasting difference.”

The Girl Scout organization has changed over the years to meet the needs of today’s girls with adventure programs, STEM skill-building activities and opportunities for fun.

Those interested in becoming a mentor to girls, learning new skills and visiting new places should contact Sarah Burkhardt at sburkhardt@gswrc.org or call 859-293-2621. To learn more about current volunteer opportunities, go to Gskentucky.org. Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road serves 15,000 girls in 66 counties in Northern, Central and Eastern Kentucky.
