Troop Money Management - 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

This session is designed to give volunteers a clear understanding of the process of troop money management.  Topics included are developing an annual plan and coordinating troop budget with girls, and revisiting and adjusting that plan and budget throughout the year.  We will also spend some time focusing specifically on Awards and Bridging Ceremonies, as well as, creative ways to present girl awards and recognize the contributions of troop volunteers.

Songs and Games - 10:45 am - 12:00 pm

Come and learn new and traditional songs and games that will bring tons of fun to your troop meeting.  Did you ever need a quick game in the heat of the moment to help your troop use some extra energy?  Are your girls planning on going to camp?  Give them an edge by teaching them some of the popular camp songs.

First Aid/CPR/AED Certification - 1:30-5:00 pm   $50 charge

American Red Cross CPR and First Aid courses are offered to volunteers through the council at a special discount price. To serve as a "Level 1 First Aider" for a troop, a volunteer must have both certifications. CPR certification is a prerequisite for First Aid certification. The $50 cost for the First Aid/CPR training covers the manual, supplies and certification card. Certification lasts for 2 years. Please dress comfortably as skills are performed on the floor.

Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) - 1:30-2:45 pm

As a Girl Scout volunteer, you already know that your girls love Girl Scouts for the friends, the fun, and all the new things they get to try.

But what if there was a way to run your troop or group that saves you time and helps you plan so that you can spend more time with the girls? Meet the Volunteer Toolkit, the web app that makes it easy for you to get the most out of every troop or group meeting.

Join us for this Volunteer Toolkit Kit (VTK) Webinar where we can walk you through the process of planning an amazing year for your troop.

Crafts and SWAPs - 1:30-2:45 pm

Girl Scouting is designed to help girls grow into leaders of Courage, Confidence, and Character. Part of that process includes fun activities such as crafts made from recyclable items and creating great SWAPS. SWAPs are pins that Girl Scouts make to trade with each other to promote friendship.  

Planning with Girls - 3:00-4:30 pm

As a leader, it may seem easier for you to make plans first and them consult with your girls; but girl-adult partnership, the cornerstone of Girl Scouting, is too valuable a step to skip. Girl planning helps each girl feel involved and provides them more opportunities to become responsible and self-reliant. This session will cover the girl/adult partnership, and what that means at each level in Girl Scouting. Some of the topics included will be troop government and budgeting with girls.

Managing Conflict - 3:00-4:30 pm

This session is designed to give volunteers the tools needed to diffuse conflicts that may arise within the troop, whether between girls or adults.  We will also offer ways that troops can limit the likelihood of challenging behavior and make a safe and happy troop environment.

Volunteer Basics - 6:30-8:30 pm

Learn more about Girl Scouts as a movement and our rich tradition in this 2 hour training session. Your adventure starts by learning about the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, the Volunteer Toolkit and program resources available to make your journey, and that of the girls, a memorable one. You will also get other program basics such as how to keep girls safe, taking trips and hosting events, helping girls manage group finances, getting parents involved, and how to plan and hold troop meetings. This is a required training before you start meeting with girls.
