Program Kits

Hey…what’s a program kit? 

Think of a program kit as a “program in a box”.  Each box is stocked with all the materials necessary to deliver a specific program to 10-15 girls.  Program kits can be reserved by troop leaders, community partners, and GSHS staff.  

Leader Approved! Juanita Valentine, Girl Scout Leader for Troops 20274 & 20321 and Program Coordinator for Lee Co., recently used the new GSHS Program Kits and had this to say, "had a great girl scout meeting with 31 girls and we worked through the Healthy Self Esteem Program Kit from the girl scout office and it went very well.

I see two different colored boxes and there are two boxes for each topic. Why?

Programs have to be specialized for older or younger minds.  Each topic has a program kit for younger girls (Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors) and a separate kit for older girls (Cadettes, Seniors, and Ambassadors) unless otherwise stated.  Younger girl program kits are in pink boxes.  Program kits for older girls are in blue boxes.  

Where are program kits?

A full collection of program kits will be available at the Memphis and Jackson Regional Service Centers in Tennessee and at the Columbus, Corinth and Tupelo Regional Service Centers in Mississippi.   

What program kits are currently available? How many more will there be?

There are currently three program kits available for each age group: ·        
  • Anti-Bullying ·        
  • Healthy Self-Esteem ·        
  • Leadership

If you have an idea for a program kit, let us know!  

Is there a fee to use a program kit?

Troop leaders will pay a $5 nonrefundable fee to check out a program kit.  This fee is used to replenish materials that have been used up.  If a program kit is returned late or returned damaged or destroyed, the troop leader will have to pay an additional $25 nonrefundable fee.  

How do I reserve a program kit?

Simply complete the council’s “Program Kit Reservation Form” and fax it in to reserve your program kit. The Program Kit Reservation Form is available on the Girl Scouts Heart of the South council website under the Resources tab.   You can also pick up a copy of the reservation form at any of the following Service Centers: Memphis, TN, Jackson, TN, Corinth, MS, Columbus, MS and Tupelo, MS.  The form can be faxed to the attention of Tosca Nance Jones at (901) 797-2183.   

Program kit reservations must be made at least one week prior to the pickup date.  Reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.  Confirmation notices will be sent out following reservation form processing.  

Program kits may be checked out for one week at a time.  They must be picked up by close of business on a Wednesday and returned to the same location by close of business the following Wednesday.   No refund will be issued if the program kit is picked up late or returned early.  

Can I reserve a program kit for more than one week at a time?

No, you may only reserve a program kit one week at a time.  However, you are more than welcome to submit a reservation form for the same kit for another use at a later date.  

What if I still have questions?
