Volunteer Training

Congratulations on making a great decision to become a Girl Scout volunteer. For those of you continuing your involvement with our organization, thank you!

Girl Scouts Louisiana East offers many free learning opportunities to thank our volunteers and to help them gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to successfully facilitate a meaningful and safe Girl Scout experience. Though most courses are free, some may include a nominal expense for books, certifications, or supplies necessary to complete the course.

Learning opportunities come in many forms: face to face, e-learning (gsLearn), online resources, discussions, conferences and more.  After completing the required courses for your volunteer position, please continue your learning experience by selecting enrichment courses offered throughout the year. 

For additional questions, please contact your Internal Recruiting Specialist: Regions 1 & 2, Mona LaCombe,; Regions 3 & 4, Trixie LeBlanc,
