General Information

Any registered Girl Scout adult may participate in adult learning courses and workshops

It is required that all new troop leaders and co-leaders complete the GSGST Welcome Session and Troop Leadership Essentials before meeting with their girls or parents.

Each troop should have an adult certified in adult/child CPR and American Red Cross First Aid.

Babysitting is not provided at training sessions. Please make arrangements for child care while you are attending training.

 

 

Cancellations and Reimbursements

Training may be cancelled if there are insufficient registrations. Fees for cancelled courses are refunded.

Only those registered for a course will be notified of any changes.

Fees for courses which are held but which you do not attend are forfeited. You may provide a registered Girl Scout adult for a replacement, but be sure to notify the Training Registrar before the training.

If you cannot attend a course for which you have paid a fee and you call the Training Registrar 24 hours prior to the course, you will have six months from that date to reschedule and complete the course. After that time, your fee is forfeited.

  

Registration Steps

  1. Select course you wish to attend
  2. Complete a separate registration form for each course you wish to attend, one person per form, please.
  3. Send completed registration form and fee (when required) to the council office five business days before the date.

The Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting is a colorful, easy-to-use binder for girls at each program level.  It's includes the handbook and badges, plus a "My Girl Scouts" section for girls to find fun activities and ways to customize their Girl Scout experience.

 

The book has three main sections:

  1. Girl Scout Handbook to introduce girls to traditions, stories, and uniforms, as well as awards they are eligible to earn at their level
  2. Girl Scout Badges that lists requirements for earning Legacy, Cookie Program, and Financial Literacy badges, with room for girls to insert additional skill-building badge requirements according to their interests
  3. My Girl Scouts with fun resources for bringing their Girl Scout experience to life, and where girls can insert their own records of their Girl Scout experience

Probably the number one tool for volunteers, the Volunteer Essentials handbook provides information about council procedures, standards, policies, and volunteer personnel policies. It also provides general information about grade levels, troop program, risk management, etc. Download a copy or ask for one at the council office. You will have post-it notes all over this one.

Please contact the Volunteer Services Department with questions.
