Volunteer of the Month: A Cheerleader, Guide and Mentor for Girls


otm-michelle

A troop leader works directly with girls to develop leadership skills, pursue outdoor experiences, Take Action in their communities and discover the world around them.

Troop leader, Michelle, has been guiding Troop 634 for the past 10 years. This troop has accomplished many projects and activities by earning 10 badges, My Promise My Faith pins, a Leadership Award and a Silver Award.

“I may set the stage and guide them, but without their big hearts and hard work, our troop would not be as successful as they are today,” says Michelle.

One of the things Troop 634 learned from Michelle is to use resources wisely.

For one of their Take Action projects, the girls decided to donate items to Packages from Home. They put their resourcefulness to use buying clearance and off-season items. For instance, they bought 69 backpacks for just a $1 each and 523 hand sanitizer bottles for .04 cents each!

Michelle is definitely teaching these girls to develop skills and confidence that will last a lifetime.

If you want to be the role model she’ll always remember, volunteer now!
