Troop Resources

You're doing something amazing by volunteering as a Co-Leader with Girl Scouts, where you'll introduce girls to new experiences and watch their confidence and skills grow!

We've compiled resources here to help you lead a successful troop. 

New Co-Leaders

Welcome to Girl Scouts!

The New Leader's Guide to Success is a go-to guide that will prepare you to effectively lead during your first year as a Girl Scout Volunteer.

The New Leader Orientation and Successful Leader Learning Series online courses give new volunteers the basics for getting started. These online trainings are available in gsLearn, our online learning platform for volunteers, and can be accessed by logging into MYGS. Please note: new volunteers must have registered as a current adult member, selected a volunteer role, and successfully completed a background check in order to access gsLearn.

The below resources, along with the Volunteer Toolkit, will help you get your troop going.
