Volunteers are lifeblood of Girl Scout unit
The volunteer unit representing the Jersey Village area comprises six women dedicated to providing the Girl Scout troops it serves with information, resources and support. Almanza, a Magnolia resident who has worked with the service unit for two years, said she has been impressed by unit volunteers' enthusiasm and energy. The volunteer work can be demanding, assistant service unit manager Debra Lewis said, but also fulfilling. White Oak Service Unit serves 44 Girl Scout troops in the areas served by Jersey Village High School, Cook Middle School and Post, Gleason and Bang elementary schools. The Girl Scouts really want to engage girls of all ages, kindergarten through 12th grade, and of all backgrounds; so we're offering a more flexible experience. A Girl Scout can try one or more of any of the organization's Pathways: camp, troop, event, travel program, series - which could include a class or multiday workshop - and online. Girls also can choose the Pathways' program opportunities, including horseback riding, sailing, drill team, archery, backpacking, rifling and health and safety.
