Volunteer Training

Welcome to the great adventure of Girl Scouting! Thanks to volunteers like you, generations of girls are learning to be leaders in their community and around the world.

We want our volunteers to be successful, engaged and fulfilled in their Girl Scout roles...and what better way to learn than with other dedicated volunteers? Get the training you need and the fun you deserve through our volunteer learning events, where you'll discover new ideas that will enrich your troop’s Girl Scout experience. We also offer a variety of online resources to develop your skills, and empower you to focus on what matters most—creating amazing experiences for your girls!
