Thinking about volunteering

<!-- SC_OFF -->

Hi Everyone. I'm a former Girl Scout but I didn't go very far (involved for a few years in elementary school). My mom actually lead my older sister's troop and we all had a lot of fun with it.

Currently I am 23 and have no kids and a full-time job that doesn't take up a lot of time and I want to get involved. I have a ton of free time on the weeknights and weekends. I was thinking of volunteering with the Girl Scouts either as a co-leader or in some other way. I have been browsing the website for volunteer opportunities but it keeps crashing. I wanted to get some more personal feedback before I decide.

Is being a co-leader something that you would advise? My mom has since passed so I can't ask her how she handled being a leader or what to expect. Is there anything about it that you really dislike? Or are there other volunteer positions that you would recommend instead? Thanks in advance!
