Volunteer Essentials 

Volunteer Essentials is a reference guide to use as needed. It includes information about starting a troop, important safety reminders (Chapter 4; Safety-Wise), and managing troop finances. It also includes a Quick-Start Guide that provides an overview of everything you need to know to plan your first meeting with girls.




Safety Activity Checkpoints

Safety Activity Checkpoints go hand in hand with Volunteer Essentials. The checkpoints help you ensure the safety of your girls as you do activities throughout your Girl Scout adventure. The checkpoints are formatted as checklists, so that you, your co-volunteers, and the girls can go through and check off that each step has been followed. Examples of checkpoints include kayaking, playgrounds, and theme parks.




GSNEO Volunteer Policies


Volunteer policies are essential for the protection of all Girl Scout members.  Adherence to policies, procedures, and standards ensures a consistent and safe quality volunteer experience, and outcomes-based program delivery for girls.



Venture Out

Venture Out is an online adventure that lets volunteers explore different ways of taking girls outside in Girl Scouts.
