Learn more about the Girl Scout organization and participate in fun activities based on GSWCF’s core focus areas (arts & theater, environmental awareness, financial literacy, healthy living & relationships, the outdoors and sports, and STEM). Attendees will also have the chance to participate in the NFL Play 60 initiative Punt, Pass & Kick, meet the Bucs’ mascot “Captain Fear” and cheerleaders, and much more! Tickets are $5/person at the door.
3. Get inspired by a volunteer call-to-action video from Girl Scouts’ Honorary National President and First Lady Michelle Obama.
In this video, Michelle Obama will ask every adult to volunteer with Girl Scouts! Volunteers are needed to work directly with girls as troop leaders or to share their specialized expertise (e.g. photography, finance, etc.) with girls. Volunteers are also needed to work behind the scenes to support other volunteers. No matter the position, Girl Scout volunteers hone leadership skills, gain valuable job experience, participate in their community, and ultimately empower and inspire girls. Beginning Sept. 30, the video can be found by visiting
