As a Parent, You Can Support Your Girl Scout

Your calendar is full. Your to-do list is jam-packed. You want to help out, but it's almost impossible to find the time. Don't panic. You don't have to give up your life to be a part of Girl Scouting!

There are only so many hours in a day, so girls and their parents or guardians have to balance many growing and diverging interests, commitments, and responsibilities. That’s why Girl Scouting today is more flexible than ever. You can choose how little or how much time and energy you can give – a month, a week, a day, an hour.

Customize Your Role

From being the "head cheerleader" who encourages and supports her daughter in Girl Scouting, to accompanying the girls on a field trip to a local museum, to helping raise the funds and traveling with a group to a Girl Scout World Center in India, you can use your skills and explore your own interests through Girl Scouting, too.  Here are a few of the many ways you can support your Girl Scout:
