First Lady Michelle Obama highlights the important role played by Girl Scout volunteers in a new video to be released the week of September 30–October 6 by Girl Scouts of the USA. The video coincides with the launch of the organization’s new national campaign to increase recruitment of girl members and adult volunteers while highlighting the fun, excitement, and anticipation that is part of the Girl Scout experience.
First Lady Michelle Obama currently serves as Girl Scouts of the USA’s Honorary National President.By accepting the position in 2009, Mrs. Obama took her place in a tradition stretching back to 1917, when First Lady Edith B. Wilson became the first Honorary National President of the Girl Scout Movement. Since then, each successive First Lady has served in this post.
First Lady Michelle Obama’s video highlighting the importance of volunteering is now available with Spanish-language subtitles. It can be found here.
Discover your Potential Through the Girl Scouts
Girl Scouts is the pre-eminent organization for girls. Girl Scouts provides a safe and encouraging environment for girls to develop the courage, confidence and character to become our future leaders.
Girl Scouts provides fun and educational activities for girls of every age that support their educational development while letting them form life-long friendships and memories. Through troop activities and other council events girls get to participate in activities that reinforce and enhance lessons they are being taught at school and often expose them to subjects and opportunities they don’t have the opportunity to participate in at school.

Want to Join a Girl Scout Troop?
GSNMT has Girl Scout Troops throughout the Council. Contact our main office to find a troop in your area. 505.343.1040 or email GSNMTInfo@GS-NMTrails.org
When you contact our office, we will need to know: the girl's school and grade, city she lives in, and the best way to contact you.
What is the process? We will help identify troops who are taking girls in your area. We will give you the contact information of the troop leader so that you can arrange for a troop visit; if the troop is a good fit, you can register your girl as a Girl Scout with this troop. If there is not an available troop in your area, we have other options exciting for becoming a Girl Scout.
