Medford Girl Scouts was pleased to celebrate its fantastic volunteer troop leaders at our last monthly leader meeting of the year. Without all our troop leaders, assistant troop leaders, and other volunteers, there wouldn’t be troop meetings, field trips, camping trips, or cookie sales. Quite simply, Medford’s Girl Scout volunteers are helping the leaders of tomorrow to grow, learn new skills, try new things, have fun, and make friends to last a lifetime.
This year, Medford Girl Scouts honored some of its newest troop leaders and assistant troop leaders with the Green and Growing Award. This award is for volunteers who have lead a troop for less than two years, who have completed their required trainings, participated in at least one Medford Girl Scout or GSEMA event or program, participated in the cookie sale, welcomed new members to the troop this year and next.
