About Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital is the largest Girl Scout Council in the country. It provides girls in grades K-12 with opportunities to learn new skills, make friends, and discover the power of girls together. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls.
Opportunity to Outreach
We are looking for an Outreach Specialist who can help us successfully bring in more girls and their families to join the Girl Scout movement through targeted outreach efforts in Prince George's County and Southern Maryland.

- Plan and run girl events, start to finish, in order to introduce girls to Girl Scouting through a variety of programs, including several week-long day camps.
- Use your impeccable Spanish language skills to engage Latina families at Back-To-School Nights and other community recruitment opportunities.
- Handle administrative tasks related to recruitment and registration of members and reporting to funders.
- Meet recruitment and troop formation goals.
- Foster community partnerships as a means of securing program sites and gain recruitment opportunities.
- Increase visibility and expand volunteer base by coordinating with community service organizations, collegiate clubs, and academic departments of local colleges and universities.
