What to Expect as a Leader - Being a Girl Scout co-leader is rewarding but can be a little overwhelming too. In this webinar, we’ll help you figure out how to have a great year with your Girl Scouts with as little stress as possible.  The best part - you’ll have an opportunity to network with other leaders virtually! While everyone is welcome to attend, this training is recommended for leaders who are new, have less than 2 years of experience, or who work with/mentor new leaders. Topics covered will include:

  • Getting started and engaging with your Girl Scout families
  • Staying safe while having fun with your troop
  • Resources including council staff and other volunteers
  • The VTK and all it can do for you
