Available Training for New Leaders

All new troop leaders should complete the online learning session Girl Scouting 101.  Password: aboutGS101

 

Next, you should attend one of the GSSWT Welcome sessionsThis 45 minute session is a basic introduction to GSSWT and covers most of the paperwork you'll need to complete to sign-up as a volunteer.

 

Third, you must attend one of the Troop Leadership Essentials sessions.  This session will give you the information needed to organize and manage a Girl Scout troop for the troop pathway. 

 

To enhance your understanding of your girls and to gain some age-specific techniques, you may want to attend on of the Grade-level Essentials sessions (Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette/Senior/Ambassador) sessions.  These session are optional, but way helpful.
