Volunteer Training

Increase your competence and confidence with our wide variety of courses, designed to equip, empower and enlighten you on your Girl Scout journey.

Training is offered in ways that best meet your unique learning style: written resources, face-to-face learning and interactive online learning.

Volunteer Resources Overview


Troop Co-Leader
New leaders, start here! Gain an overview of the organization and theĀ Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE). We require that one core-leadership-trained adult be present at all Girl Scout meetings and outings.


Outdoor Training
Take girls outside! Progressive classes provide resources and skill-development in cabin and tent camping and outdoor fire-building and cooking.


Resources & Bridging
Being attentive to what girls are experiencing as they mature is a big help to girls. So take some time to understand the likes, needs, and abilities of girls at different ages. As you listen and learn along with girls, you may find it useful to review the highlights of their development. Here you'll find developmental abilities and needs of girls at various program levels. Of course, each girl is an individual, so these are only guidelines to help you get to know the girls. Plus, lots of resources for bridging to the next program level!


Volunteer Meetings
Volunteer Meetings are designed to help you learn more about council activities and to network with other volunteers. All co-leaders, parents, volunteers and community members are welcome!


First Aid and CPR
For the safety and well-being of all, we require troops have a First Aid and CPR-certified adult present for any activity that is beyond a regular meeting site (including overnight trips) and/or physically demanding.
