The Billings Outpost

Girl Scouts looking for volunteers

Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming is in need of volunteers and troop leaders in Billings. Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming covers over 245,000 square miles, 79 counties and in our council area there are more than 128,000 girls that need a positive role model in their lives, a news release said.

Girl Scouts is the No. 1 leadership organization for girls and women in the world, the release said, but girls need volunteers and troop leaders to guide them.

Every girl has the ability to lead, but only one girl in five believes she can. A lack of role models, unhealthy images of beauty, peer pressure to not stand out, and a mean-girl culture are just some of the obstacles that stand between girls and their full potential, the release said.

Volunteering opportunities with Girl Scouts are tailored to fit your schedule, your skills, and your interests, the release said. Your time as a volunteer will help girls pursue whatever interests, causes, and leadership roles that are most important to them.
