Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England Awards Volunteers of the Month


Warwick, R.I. (March 16, 2023)— Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England's Volunteer of the Month celebrates exceptional adult volunteers for the great work they do throughout the Girl Scout year.

Girl Scouts exists because of the dedicated and hardworking volunteers who deliver the program to youth throughout our communities. In celebration of their extraordinary impact, GSSNE recognizes one outstanding volunteer every month as the Volunteer of the Month. Chosen from a pool of nominations, the volunteer is featured on our website and social media, their photo is displayed at GSSNE headquarters, they receive a personal letter from GSSNE’s CEO, a certificate, and a special gift. Nominations may be submitted by anyone who has worked with or is familiar with that volunteer and the service they’ve performed.

Our December Volunteer of the Month was Laura Masterson who is a long standing pilar of the Girl Scout community in Bristol/Warren. Laura has been supporting her Girl Scout service unit for over 25 years. Most recently, she stepped up as a co-leader to a new Daisy and Brownie troop that allowed 21 youth to join Girl Scouts. Laura has spent countless hours organizing, planning, prepping, and ensuring an inclusive and creative environment for all. Her leadership has led to eight caregivers stepping up as troop volunteers! Laura is an exceptionally dedicated volunteer who continues to make the Girl Scout program exciting and accessible to all!

Our January Volunteer of the Month was Lindsay Lachapelle who has been a Troop Leader in Somerset for 12 years and has stepped up to help at the service unit level for many years. Lindsay has planned all the service unit events for the last two years, working incredibly hard to grow the Girl Scout community in Somerset. She is a sounding board for new leaders and is always there to lend a hand. Lindsay continues to go above and beyond for the Somerset service unit .
