Service Units

The bridge between your troop and the GSWNY Council and often your first stop for information! 

Where: Our GSWNY Council is divided into Service Units based on neighborhood, school district, geographic area, or county. Each Service Unit is supported by a Service Unit team. 

Who: Service Unit teams are made up of skilled volunteers with years of Girl Scout experience. Service Unit Managers (SUMs) coordinate the Service Unit. Other important roles include: Finance Consultant, Product Program Managers, Troop Manager, and Welcome Specialist.

What: Service Unit teams support you by holding regular leader meetings and planning fun activities throughout the year like Cookie Kickoff, Camporee, or a STEM event.

Service Unit Meetings

Attending regular Service Unit meetings is required for at least one troop leader or troop representative. There you’ll:

  • Meet and network with fellow volunteers
  • Learn about upcoming events and trainings
  • Receive important resources and materials, like your Cooke Program materials
