Golden Gate Bridging 2020 Volunteers

Thank you for volunteering to be a part of a truly magical experience!

Golden Gate Bridging allows Juniors to bridge to the next level of Girl Scouts in style by crossing the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. This will be the 39th Golden Gate Bridging event and we hope to get 7,000 people to join in the party!

After Girl Scouts cross the bridge, participants spend the afternoon party it up on Crissy Field with a variety of activities, crafts, and games.  Additionally, you will get lunch for free!

2020 Golden Gate Bridging Volunteer Descriptions

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 pedestrian, loading buses, or activities on the Main Post lawn.

Care Team: Fill in wherever help is needed. Cover another volunteer needing a break of 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!

Lead Assistant: Open to Senior and/or Ambassador level Girl Scouts.  We are looking for 3-5 Senior and/or Ambassador level Girl Scouts to serve in a leadership capacity as a Lead Assistant. As a Lead Assistant, you would work closely with one of three Area Leads (a staff position that coordinates an area on the day of the event).   Duties would include, but not be limited to, helping with volunteer/staff orientation, help coordinate breaks, aid in communication with other Leads and more.

Lunch Distribution: It takes many hands to feed 7,000 people and we need your help to distribute the lunches on Crissy Field.  It would include sorting the lunches when they are delivered and handing them out onsite.  It is the hub of activity!

First Aider: Adults Only. Provide First Aid to participants and events crew as needed. You 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 certification on the 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 welcoming experience for participants needing help during the event. Booths are located on Crissy Field. It is helpful if you know San Francisco.

Parking: By far, the most glamorous job!  No joke, you get to wear fun costumey stuff and great people at the start or end of their experience.  Plus, you get to boss people around and tell them where to go all day!

Set Up or Take Down: After the event, there is a bunch still to do.  Staff and volunteers have been working hard all day and need that extra push to get everything packed up and back on the moving van.  It truly takes a village to leave no trace of garbage after a long day of bridging.
