GSNEO’s Adult Leadership Experience is like Girl Scout camp for grown-ups.
Explore new things with hands-on learning, step up and overcome challenges, share ideas with other volunteers, and build your skills to start your new troop year with a bang.
These plans cover participants taking part in any council-approved, supervised Girl Scout activity. Activity insurance is mandatory for all international travel.
GSNEO Member & 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.
Pixie Plus is your community resource for events and activities. Posts are by program age level and county, and are created by community vendors that have been checked out by GSNEO.
If you have checked out one of these activities be sure to rate your experience on Pixie Plus and leave a comment for other troops! Do you know of a great place in your community? Send an email to email@example.com with the information and we'll do the rest!
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.
Interested in a specific volunteer position? Make sure that you have already selected this volunteer role on the Participation Catalog and then complete the corresponding volunteer position description.
gsLearn is a site where volunteers can go for all their training needs. At this time, learning modules are available for new volunteers to get oriented, and all program levels of troop leaders.
GSNEO will still offer in-person training for required hands-on courses, such as Outdoor Essentials, Outdoor Overnight Experience, First Aid/CPR/AED, and other specialized volunteer roles. These trainings will be available to register for through the Events Calendar.
Now it's even easier for Girl Scout volunteers to introduce girls to the wonders of hiking and camping. Whether you're a camping pro, or just starting out, you can help girls of all ages have a positive experience in the great outdoors.

The more people who get involved - the better the Girl Scout experience! This form can be used at parent/caregiver meeting, recruitment events or anytime a troop needs more support.
In these days of stay-at-home orders and social distancing, many troops are engaging in virtual experiences that connect Girl Scout friends together. Safety is always at the front of our minds for all Girl Scout experiences, even when we’re meeting virtually. Girl Scouts of the USA has updated Safety Activity Checkpoints to include information on Coronavirus Safety in Girl Scouts and Have an Emergency Action Plan. A new chapter has been added for Virtual Troop Meetings and additions have been made to the chapter on Camping.
The Sensitive Issues Consent Form should be signed by parents/caregivers and girls BEFORE engaging in planned programs/discussions that may be considered sensitive in nature.
Helping girls decide what they want to do, and coaching them as they earn and manage money to pursue their goals, is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE). Your Girl Scout group plans and finances its own activities, with your guidance. At the same time, the girls learn many valuable skills that serve them throughout their lives.
If you and your girls are ready to try virtual meetings, check out these safety tips before getting started.
