Girl Scouts – North Carolina Coastal Pines is home to over 9,000 volunteers, and every single one is important to us. As the new Volunteer Experience Team, we’re here to support the overall success and experience of our volunteers through comprehensive training systems, educational programs and resources, and recognition and appreciation initiatives. Starting with your very first day as a volunteer, we want your experience to be positive and satisfying and one that makes being here as meaningful and rewarding to you as being a Girl Scout is to our girls.
