1. Passport to Travel Part 2 (this class requires your
participation in 2 sesions, Parts 1 and 2, both)
Whether your Girl Scouts travel
around the world or around the block, some of the most memorable
moments in a Girl Scout life happen while taking trips! Traveling is
built upon a progression of activities and girl-led processes. Girl
Scout Daisies, for example, can begin with a discovery walk planned by
the leaders. By the time the girls are Cadettes or older they are
able to plan their own national and international travel! Whatever
avenue your Girl Scout chooses to explore it is the Travel
Consultant’s job to guide her through the process. This course will
prepare you for this position.
Required for: One registered and screened adult volunteer per troop
taking a troop/group on an extended trip lasting 3 nights or longer.
The Troop Travel course must be completed every five (5) years.
2. Managing the Transition to Leading Older Girls
Middle school and high school not
only mean many changes within your girls personally, but also within
their Girl Scout experience. This session will focus most on what it
means to be girl-led for this age group and how to engage your girls
as the leaders of their own experience. We will also explore what
opportunities your girls should be able to step up and lead and where
you should consider taking a step back from how you guided the girls
when they were younger.
3. Championing the Girl Scout Brand
Join the GSLE Marketing and
Communications team for an engaging workshop highlighting social media
tips and tricks, Girl Scout branding guidelines, GSLE MarComm
procedures, and press relations best practices. You’ll learn all the
ways to be a champion for the brand and a media pro!
4. Digital Resources: There’s an App for that!
There are many digital resources that
support volunteers in delivering the Girl Scout Leadership Experience,
ensuring every Girl Scout has the opportunity she deserves to build a
lifetime of leadership, success and adventure. You will learn to view
your troop roster, update contact information, update girls'
information, record girls' attendance/achievements and access badge,
Journey and award content for all levels.
5. Ceremonies for Girl Scouts
Attendees will explore the rich
traditions of Girl Scout ceremonies. Included will be several flag
ceremonies, bridging, rededication, investiture, and more. Resource
links will be provided.
