Local Girl Scouts looking for volunteers

ERLANGER, KY (FOX 19) The Girl Scouts Wilderness Road Council is looking for individuals who want to make a difference today for an impact tomorrow. Currently, the Council is in need of volunteers to serve as troop leaders for the high number of girls throughout Northern Kentucky who are on a waiting list to become Girl Scouts.

"We help girls reach their full potential, contribute to their community, and have fun while learning. More parents are recognizing how Girl Scouting can positively affect their daughter's future. We are constantly searching for and training new volunteers to mentor and lead girls," says Ruby Webster, Center Director for the Licking Valley Cluster, Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road. "Whether a person has time to give once a week or once a year, we have volunteer opportunities that will make a difference."

The Girl Scout organization says they have changed over the years to meet the needs of today's girls with adventure programs, skill-building activities, and opportunities for fun.

The Girl Scouts say because girls continue to sign up for this program, more volunteers are needed. Those interested in becoming a mentor to girls, learning new skills, and visiting new places can contact Ruby Webster, Girl Scouts Licking Valley Cluster Director, by calling (859) 342 – 6264 or by emailing rwebster@gswrc.org for more information on current volunteer opportunities.

Girl Scouts of Kentucky's Wilderness Road serves 25,000 girls in 66 counties in Northern, Central and Eastern Kentucky.
