Confidential written recommendation

To ensure quality Girl Scouting, we want to make the best possible match of the volunteer to the position. Although many Girl Scout volunteer jobs work with girls, the council facilitator job involves working with adults throughout a 45 county area. Facilitators must possess sound judgement, the ability to think on their feet, and good communication skills. We need those who can actively engage a diverse audience in the learning process, reaching participants of different learning styles and backgrounds.
