WHAT IS A SERVICE UNIT?
Our council is big – 90,000 square miles BIG – so in order to give you the very best Girl Scout experience, our council is apportioned into 40 volunteer-led geographic areas called service units. The volunteers who help guide and support the activities of the service unit are called the service unit team (also referred to as the service team).
SERVICE UNIT TEAM
A service unit team is a committee of volunteers working together in a geographic area providing support to troop leaders. The team’s key responsibilities include supporting and guiding local volunteers, communicating information to troops, implementing local events, recruiting and retaining girl and adult members and promoting the mission of Girl Scouts within their community. The service unit team adds value and strength to support the entire service unit. It ensures the delivery of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls. A full service team includes: • Service unit manager (Andrea McCausland and Sharon Kelly), who oversees and supports the work of the team. • Communications Coordinator, (Position Open) who supports the manager and distributes information. • Membership recruiter, (Position Open) who creates visibility for Girl Scouts in the service unit area. • Volunteer mentor (Kathy Livengood), who service as the liaison for new volunteers to help make the Girl Scout experience fun, helpful and engaging. • Service Unit Data Specialist (Stacie Bass), who serves as the first point of contact for troop leaders and individuals regarding membership registration and renewal. • Treasurer (Christina Weber), who ensures the financial health of the service unit and troops. • Event and Travel Coordinator (Katie Gauthier), who develops quality Girl Scout events and supports and coaches girls and volunteers as they plan and participate in events. • Service unit product manager (Geoff Livengood), who leads and supports service unit participation in the Fall Product Program and Girl Scout Cookie Program. Some service units have all positions filled, and many do not. Teams without all positions filled will work together to meet the basic needs of the service unit. They can use your help, too!
