Join our Girl Scout Recruiter Corps

recruiterpatchsmall

In the face of the increased competition for girls’ time, we need an army of volunteers and girls dedicated to the movement and willing to share their story. 

Every girl and adult volunteer can join the GSLE Recruiter Corps and earn recognitions for their efforts.  Girls will earn the exclusive GSLE Recruiter Corps patch the first year they complete requirements by Posting, Promoting and Partying like a G.I.R. L. and patch bars in subsequent years.  It is so simple – just complete two or more requirements from "Promote" and one or more from both "Post" and "Party."
