Volunteer Event Crew Information

Volunteers are a vital part of the Golden Gate Bridging Event. Volunteers serve in many capacities from supporting event logistics (parking and buses) to cheering on girls on their bridging journey. All volunteers also receive a commemorative patch and pin as well as coffee and lunch during the event. Generally all members of a group or troop are assigned the same area and time. Groups with youth volunteers must have enough adults to meet the Girl Scout travel ratio guideline of 2 adults to 16 girls and 1 adult for each additional 8 girls.
 
During registration, volunteers will have an opportunity to tell us their top three choices for assignments. We do our best to accommodate these requests, but please note that they cannot be guaranteed. All areas are led by a trained GSNorCal staff member or volunteer. Opportunities include:
 
Main Post Assistant – Welcome girls to the event and help them get started on their GGB journey and then say goodbye and hear all about the day’s adventures.  Assignments may include directing traffic and pedestrians, loading buses, or activities on the Main Post lawn.
 
Care Team – Fill in wherever help is needed. Cover another volunteer needing a break or an area that is short staffed, deliver supplies across the field, or help a participant find their way. Care team volunteers are go getters who will look for ways to help out.
 
Crissy Field Assistant – Run an activity or game booth and help introduce new Cadettes to the older girl opportunities available to them. Or act as general support for Crissy Field operations during the event. All Crissy Field Assistants will be assigned to arrive early for set-up or stay later for cleanup.
 
Event Route Assistant – Cheer on participants as they arrive at Marin Vista Point, cross the bridge, get pinned at the Older Girl Reception Zone, or find their way to Crissy Field or back to the Main Post parking area. This is the best option to collect lots of SWAPS!
 
First Aider – Adults only. Provide first aid to participants and event crew as needed. May be assigned to First Aid tent at Main Post or on Crissy Field or somewhere along the event route. Must have current First Aid/CPR training on day of the event and have completed the Girl Scout First Aider course.
 
Information Booth – Be a hero! Answer questions, give directions, deal with lost and found, and provide a welcoming experience for participants needing help during the event. Booths located at Main Post and Crissy Field. Must be familiar with event and locations.
