Service Unit Volunteers
What is a Service Unit (SU)?
A Girl Scout Service Unit is a specifically defined geographic area designed to best serve the girls and volunteers in the area. The Girl Scout Council relies heavily on volunteers. Troop leaders provide direct services to girls while Service Units/teams provide vital support to leaders, girls, and parents through meetings, events, recruitment activities, financial management, etc.
The purpose of a Service Unit Team (SUT) is to encourage, support and organize local Girl Scout troops by providing direct support and services to Girl Scout members, including girls, leaders, and volunteers, as well as parents and caregivers. The Service Unit Team engages their local community to encourage the overall mission of the Girl Scouts of Central California South Council.
The Function of a Service Unit Team (SUT) : The Service Unit Team helps recruit new girl and adult members as well as engage and retain existing girl and adult members through local SU events and opportunities. Service Unit Teams provide an extra layer of support to local volunteers, allowing Girl Scouts to reach more girls in more ways.
