Co-leaders (Required training)

As a co-leader, you’ll introduce girls to new experiences and help them unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to take the lead and change the world. This online training will provide the knowledge and tools needed to organize a troop, lead a group of girls and create parental support. You will learn now to create a safe space for girls…a place there they can learn and grow.

Troop Leadership Essentials (TLE)  

Expand your knowledge (For co-leaders and volunteers)

Discover who your girls are and what adventures they’re ready to explore. Connect with the resources available for your specific grade level and take action to learn how to facilitate activities that are girl-led, cooperative learning and learning by doing.
