This life-changing program is made possible through the generous support of donors. Make a gift today.
Volunteers are critical in helping to advance the GSBB mission. Volunteers take on a variety of important roles including:
- Serving on the GSBB Advisory Committee
- Chaperoning Girl Scout activities
- Participating in fundraising efforts
- Providing vital transportation to GSBB families
The safety of the girls participating in the GSBB program is paramount. All GSBB volunteers are required to become members of GSOSW, go through a background check and complete a series of volunteer trainings.
The majority of GSBB families have transportation challenges and needs. GSBB volunteer drivers play an essential role, traveling thousands of miles every month to bring girls to the Coffee Creek Correctional Facility and ensure their participation in Girl Scouting.
How Driving for GSBB Works
Twice monthly, GSBB volunteer drivers rent cars for their route and meet girls at a determined location, usually a business or gas station located central to a cluster of GSBB families.
GSBB volunteer driver mornings typically begin at 6 a.m. on the Saturdays that GSBB meets. Currently, the majority of GSBB families live in the extended Salem area (including Hubbard, Salem and Stayton).
