What is the difference between a Girl Scout Membership Pin and the Years of Service Pin?
These two appreciations are earned recognitions by volunteers. They do not require a nomination or endorsement. The volunteer wishing to receive any of these two pins needs to complete the online request form.
Membership Year Pin—this is a numeral guard that is worn with the Girl Scout pin and recognizes both girl and adult membership years. Pins are given in 5-year intervals. Volunteers may submit this form themselves, or a Service Unit may submit the form if they are presenting the pin to the volunteer at a ceremony. Volunteers receiving 40+ year pins will be recognized at the annual Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition event held by Council. To be recognized at the event, pin requests must be received by Sept 1.
Years of Service Pin—this is a pin that recognizes years of service as a volunteer, and are given in 5-year intervals. Council will distribute this pin to volunteers who have served 20+ years, and recognize them at the annual Volunteer Appreciation and Recognition event. To be recognized at the event, pin requests must be received by Sept. 1.
