Volunteer Resources

volunteer_male

You are the cheerleader, guide and mentor for girls on their journey to discover their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™. You are best at scoping out experiences G.I.R.L.s are searching for while, most importantly, having a tremendous amount of fun!

Below is a list of online resources to make it easier for you to focus on what's important!

Volunteer Essentials

Volunteers are required to become familiar with the council's policies, procedures and standards. Possibly the number one tool for volunteers, the Volunteer Essentials handbook provides information about council procedures, standards, policies and volunteer personnel policies. It also provides general information about grade levels, troop program, risk management, etc. Download a copy or ask for one at the council office. You will have post-it notes all over this one.

Safety Activity Checkpoints

Safety Checkpoints are important in ensuring girls' safety. When preparing for a Girl Scout activity, always begin with the Safety Activity Checkpoints to see the nationally required standards and guidelines.
