Girl Scouts host dinner, seek volunteers

JEFFERSON —  In a continuing effort to recruit Girl Scout leaders for Ashtabula County troops, Girl Scouts of America will host a free dinner on April 29 for people looking to enrich the lives of young girls through scouting.

Member service coordinator Sabbrina Landers said she hopes mothers and grandmothers will take the opportunity to learn how they can lead troops.

The free dinner will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Jefferson United Methodist Church, 125 E. Jefferson St. To register, call Landers at (330) 989-7009.

The registration fee for Girl Scouts is $12, and leaders and girls can sign up right at the dinner.

Ladders said she hopes to find an “out of the box” way to get adults interested in scouting. Her first hope are non-traditional students at Kent State University Ashtabula Campus.

“Education and social service majors could benefit tremendously from volunteering with our organization,” Landers said. “We have ways to volunteer other than just running troops. We run summer programs at community centers and churches that may only last a few weeks, which fits perfect into a students time commitment.”

Landers said the arrangement would benefit people who need volunteer hours and provide Girl Scouts of America with quality short term volunteers.

Landers said people like scouting, but may shy away from volunteering because they think it is a long-term commitment.
