"It's like a big opportunity for me," says high school junior Maddie Kliewer. "I didn't even know that people could go to this because it's the first year I actually knew about inaugurations from classes, so this is big."
They're among 750 girl scouts who were chosen to volunteer.
They don't know just what they'll be doing yet on Inauguration Day but they're hoping to catch a glimpse of the president himself.
"Seeing the president, like not on TV, but actually seeing him. I think that'll be cool," says high school sophomore Jules Wiseman.
Word has it they could be escorting folks perusing through the parade or guiding the crowds through the metro, or even participate at one of the balls.
"Maybe we would greet at the ball or something," says Wiseman. "I kind of like the idea of that."
The girls will be standing out in their uniforms representing the scouts, and helping to be a part of history in the making.
"We'll be wearing our vests," says Wiseman, "so they'll be able to know. We'll be fully uniformed."
