Girl Scout Adult Volunteers Awards and Recognitions
Girl Scouts of Nassau County values all of our volunteers and recognizes the contribution they make in developing girl leaders. We also recognize that there are individuals who provide service to Girl Scouting that is "above and beyond" the expectations of their volunteer position. GSUSA Adult Awards are intended for volunteers such as these that provide exemplary service. The link above brings you to the NEW guidelines from GSUSA. We are in the process of updating our nomination forms to reflect these new guidelines!

What does being a Leader mean to me?
" Of course there are times that you want to give up, or it is too much, or you just want to stay home on a Friday night and catch up on laundry, cleaning etc....... but then you get yourself up and go and realize each and every week why you come and stay with it -- it is and always has been "The Girls" and I remember that call umpteen years ago, when I was 4 months pregnant with my son, stating that if I did not step up to be a leader my 4-1/2 year old could not be a Daisy girl scout because there were no leaders and there was not troop for her to enter. As I looked into her eyes and said "yes I will do it", I never thought I would still be looking year after year and still today at 19 girls faces that have moved on to become Ambassadors saying with the same feeling as I did that day for my own daughter "Yes, I will do it".
