Supporting Volunteers in Working with Girls

nobackgroundGS_MISSION_trefoilOur amazing volunteers make Girl Scouting possible for our 35,000 girl members. From service unit coordinators to troop leaders and cookie managers, the way our 15,000 adult volunteers support girls across our council is inspiring. We are pleased to provide training and professional development to help our volunteers help girls transform into the leaders of tomorrow.

There are a few upcoming training events that will help us all to become even better leaders.

Sunday, September 18

Service Unit team members and Troop Volunteer are invited to join us for a Core Learning Day in Dedham!

All current and incoming service unit team members and troop pathway orientation providers will receive position training unique to their role, annual GSEM updates, and an introduction to the new Volunteer Toolkit at the Service Unit CORE Learning Day. Register today for free; brunch is included!

At the same time, troop volunteers can complete the Core Learning Plan for Troop Volunteers by registering individually for Troop Pathway Orientation and Daisy, Brownie or Junior Essentials for free. MEDIC First Aid/CPR training is offered for a fee, and financial assistance is available.
