Volunteer Resources

Welcome, Girl Scout volunteers! 

You belong to a network of nearly one million adults who share an important commitment: preparing girls to lead successful lives.

Now you can prepare yourself to be a more successful volunteer!

Check out these online resources and training courses that you can access whenever it’s convenient for you.

Girl Scouting 101 
Class is in session—whenever you’re ready! This self-paced, 45-minute course is your online orientation to Girl Scouting, and is required for all volunteers before starting a volunteer position. Just sign in to get started. 

Volunteer Essentials 
Get just about everything you need as a Girl Scout volunteer, including basic facts and forms, as well as tips on planning outdoor activities, managing troop finances, promoting safety, arranging trips, selling cookies, and more. 

Safety Activity Checkpoints 
Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and emotional safety of girls, and we follow these guidelines at all times. From archery to hiking, outdoor cooking to ziplining, get checklists to help everyone stay safe—and have fun! 

Volunteer Toolkit* 
The Volunteer Toolkit is a new digital planning tool that gives you resources and program content to get your year started—and keep it going smoothly! Fully customizable, the toolkit is digitally responsive so you can plan and prepare practically anywhere.

Girls have more fun when they can shape their own experience, do hands-on activities, and work together as teams. With the new toolkit, girls and leaders can explore meeting topics and program activities together, and follow the fun as they plan their Girl Scout year.
