New Leader Basics Training

In order to build our girls into great leaders, we have to start with ourselves! Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas offers virtual and in-person training to empower you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to deliver fun, safe, and meaningful Girl Scout experiences to the girls in your troop.

Sign up to a training today and make a difference tomorrow! 

New troop leaders are required to complete the New Leader Basics training prior to meeting with the troop.

First Aid/CPR

CPR/AED and First Aid: A first-aider is an adult volunteer who has taken Girl Scout-approved first-aid and CPR training that includes specific instructions for child CPR. All troop meeting and troop activities must have at least one adult volunteer in attendance that is first-aid/CPR-certified. 

The following health care providers may serve as Girl Scout First-Aiders if they hold current CPR certification: physician, physician's assistant, dentist, nurse practitioner, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse, paramedic, military medic, or emergency medical technician.  Note: First Aid/CPR classes completed entirely online do not satisfy Girl Scout requirements for certification and do not offer enough opportunity to practice and receive feedback on technique.
