Thank You So Much for Volunteering to be a Girl Scouts of Northern California mentor!
What Does A Mentor Do?
Mentors are a group of dedicated, hardworking volunteers who recognize the value of the Girl Scout program and give their time to help others make the most out of their commitment in becoming a Girl Scout volunteer. A mentor provides ongoing support for new leaders by guiding them through the first steps of Girl Scout leadership, sharing program ideas and resources, helping solve problems, interpreting GSUSA and GSNorCal information, and being available to assist and support new leaders as needed.
