Overview: This online training is required for volunteers who are new to the organization, whether they work directly with girls or behind the scenes. This course is a video from GSUSA which provides an overview to the Girl Scout organization, including Girl Scout pathways (various ways that girl and adult members participate). Resources and support available to volunteers, the Girl Scout Mission, Promise and Law, the benefits to girls of participating in the Cookie program, some basic safety requirements; and an overview of Girl Scout programs for girls.
GSCM offers a range of courses to help prepare and train you in your role as a Girl Scout Volunteer. Our goal is to provide girls with the best possible program in a safe environment and to provide adult volunteers with the training necessary to ensure excellent programming for our girls and their safety and protection. To do that, we require Girl Scout Leaders and Advisors to complete training within six months of their appointment. When you begin as a volunteer, your Service Unit Manager or Membership and Community Development Specialist will host a welcome session to give you information specific to your geographical area.
For an overview of training program, please read our Volunteer Training Overview.
Training on Your Schedule
Our volunteers lead busy lives and fitting volunteer training into your schedule can be a challenge. Our classroom courses offer the opportunity for hands on activities and sharing with other leaders, but we do realize that not everyone is able to attend, so we offer and are developing alternatives to help you get the training you need at a time that fits your schedule.
GSCM provides a Home Study option for our Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior and Teen courses. Girl Scouting 101 and Introduction to Girl Scout Leadership are also self-studies you can complete on your own time.
