Girl Scout Leader Appreciation Day

Girl Scout Leader’s Day was first commemorated 25 years ago on April 22nd. Originally designed to honor adult volunteers who led Girl Scout troops, over the years Leader’s Day has evolved to recognize the contributions of volunteers throughout our Movement. It is now more appropriately called Girl Scout Leadership Day, an inclusive term that acknowledges the important role that older girls, staff members and others play in striving to make Girl Scouting the premier leadership development organization for girls. Both girls and adults alike have the opportunity to explore their own personal leadership style through Girl Scouts and on this day we salute the work our leaders have done to make our organization and our communities great.
