Karen Skole: Support Girl Scouts, we need Volunteers!

For many, a sit-upon, a round of "Make New Friends" or fly-up wings may not carry any meaning, but to thousands of girls who are now adults throughout the Central Coast, these prompts bring back warm, fun memories more valuable than silver and gold, as the song goes.

Girl Scouts is making the world a better place while making a lasting impression in the lives of both its volunteers and girl members. Demonstrating this, recent Girl Scout research shows that 94 percent of Girl Scout volunteers and 97 percent of girl members believe Girl Scouts provides them with new, fun and exciting experiences.
