Girl Scouts Celebrate, Commemorate Volunteer Service

|

Girl Scouting is now officially recognizing two special weeks in the calendar year to commemorate volunteer service--"Make a Difference Week" and "Volunteer Appreciation Week."

 

Many people around the nation celebrate Make a Difference Day--"America's largest day of doing good." Held on the fourth Saturday in October, the day highlights how people engaged in public service have the power to transform their communities and our world. Girl Scouting is now instituting it as a week-long event.

 

In addition, several countries around the world participate in National Volunteer Week celebrations--and Girl Scouting will continue to join in on the fun.  During National Volunteer Week, which includes National Girl Scout Leaders Day (April 22), Girl Scouts of the USA pays tribute to innovative volunteers for making a difference. For 2010, National Volunteer Week will be celebrated Sunday, April 20 through Friday, April 25.
