Volunteer Toolkit

Simplified Troop Management

The new online Volunteer Toolkit (VTK), helps troop volunteers get what they need, when they need it. The VTK is designed to help improve the girl and volunteer experience. With the VTK troops can plan out their whole year, view their roster with all troop member information and access tools to facilitate communication between parents and troop leaders, all from a computer or mobile device. These online resources help volunteers work with their troops to plan activities their troop loves to do and coordinate these activities with a Journey. 

The VTK is designed to help improve the girl and volunteer experience. Online resources will help volunteers work with their troops to plan troop activities, custom-fit with what their troop loves to do and coordinate it with a Journey. 

 

To learn more about VTK, please browse our video library below. Our videos will provide an overview of VTK and guide you through its many features.
