Pathways for Working with Girls
Schedule tight? Difficult to manage a full year commitment? Not a problem.
Besides Troop leadership, there are other Pathways that offer endless, flexible ways to participate as a volunteer in Girl Scouting. The flexibility of Pathways allows you to participate according to your lifestyle and availability -- whether you want to partner directly with girls throughout a membership year, participate for only a few weeks or months, or work with other adults in a variety of roles.
Pathways include: Camp - Events - Series - Travel - Troops - Virtual.
Participants need to bring paper, pencil, Girl Guide and Journey for your Girl Scout Level. You must register one week prior to the Training course. If registration minimums are not met, the Training will be cancelled.
