About Volunteer Collective

Volunteer Collective is a local collection of information unlocking the Girl Scout Experience powered by volunteers.
What does that mean?

It means that Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, your local council, is committed to helping you be the leader Girl Scouts need. Girl Scouts is a collective of like-minded adults dedicated to giving the Girl Scouts in their lives an incredible experience where they can have fun, make friends, and try something new while (shh) learning (we won’t tell if you don’t).

Some of our volunteers start with Girl Scouts ready and raring to go, other volunteers raise their hand to volunteer because no one else would, and some start somewhere in between.

It doesn’t matter to us how and why you became a Girl Scout volunteer.

What matters is that you’re here. And we are so glad you’re here.

So, it’s time to get started.

We’ve broken down the local volunteer experience into five categories.

Leader Basics

A place to start or restart as a Girl Scout Volunteer. 

Troop Management

A place that covers all of the behind-the-scenes work Girl Scout volunteers do.

Making it Happen

A place where the tools and guides to having great meetings, outings, overnights, and adventures live.

Service Areas

A place made for local Girl Scout Communities to thrive.


A place for Cookie and Fall Product sellers to find what they need to meet their goals and fund their fun.
