Invite a Friend - Girl Scouts - 2015

By Kat High, Recruitment Director

Two heroes are better than one! This November, invite a friend to start a new Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop, and everyone wins! You get $50 to spend at Girl Scouts’ official online store, and your friend gets a fun, free Volunteer Resource Pack to help them get started. Plus girls get another amazing role model and hero—so much YES!

It can be as simple as bringing your friends together to talk about the fun you’re having with Girl Scouts! Over coffee, dessert, or even a girls’ night out!

Share with them that girls are happier, more confident, make friends, and gain new skills and experiences in Girl Scouts. Let them know that as a Girl Scout volunteer, they will help girls become the leaders they are meant to be.  There are so many ways they can make a difference volunteering with Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines.

Plus, when you double the friends, you double your prize…
$100 for you and a Volunteer Resource Pack for each friend—awesome!

Once your friend joins Girl Scouts as a troop leader, completes the volunteer application, and starts a new Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop, head on over to to claim your prize.

When you invite the inspiring people you know to join the fun of leading girls, it’s a WIN-WIN! Ready. Set. Go Invite-a-Friend today!

Girl Scouts - ATC

By Connie Walker, Volunteer Services and Resource Development Executive

Every year our council has the pleasure of hosting our Administrative Team Conference (ATC). It’s a day of fun and training, a day to connect with friends and council staff, a day that reminds us why we are Girl Scout Volunteers – our girls!

This was my first ATC and it is now officially one of my favorite days of the year! For those whom I didn’t have the chance to meet, my name is Connie Walker and I am the new Volunteer Services Executive. A long time volunteer, this role combines my passion for giving back, developing and supporting fellow volunteers, and creating a culture of appreciation all year long. I am so excited to serve in this role and kick off the new Girl Scout year!

Volunteering has played an integral and important part of in my life. From a young candy striper at South Suburban Hospital in Chicago to a recent Brownie Co-Leader here in our council to dedicating my time to my two sons and the numerous activities and organizations they have been a part of…being a volunteer is a part of my core. I’m sure many of our volunteers can relate!

I am so excited to support all our amazing volunteers in this new role and if you are ever in Raleigh feel free to drop by to say hello, give me a quick call with a question, or send an email if you ever need help. I’m here for you and our girls 100%.

Additionally, to help set us all up for success in the new year, I wanted to share our amazing ATC sessions and presentations below for those who were not able to attend. Enjoy the presentations below that range from council updates shared during the opening session to What’s New with Outdoor Adventures!

Thank you to all our rock star volunteers – for all the time, dedication, and passion you put forth so our girls can shine brighter and brighter each year. I’m so looking forward to working with you in the near future.
