    Our Summer Youth Program has come to a close, which means we need lots of extra hands on the farm to help harvest! Come to the farm to harvest lots of fall crops, like beets, cabbage, basil, carrots, squash, and more! Depending on availability, you may even be able to take some home!

  • Girl Scouts Outreach Leaders

    On Going Need : SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITY CENTERS THROUGHOUT SALT LAKE CITY

    Imagine impacting the life of a girl because you helped her discover her inner leader. What if you could do that every week with your very own group of girls to mentor? Girls in our program come from low-income schools, shelters and refugee centers, and they love our program and the volunteers that lead it! The Girl Scouts of Utah Outreach Program provides these troops at sites throughout Salt Lake City and West Valley for girls who might not be able to participate without council sponsorship, and it's only possible with volunteers like you. Most sites only require 1-2 hours of time each week during after-school hours and we ask a minimum commitment of 8 weeks. We encourage you to recruit a friend to be a co-leader with you. This program provides membership, training, curriculum and swag. If you're interested or have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!
