Getting Started

A Workshop for New Girl Scout Leaders - No Fee

Getting Started is the first volunteer learning workshop for troop leaders, assistant leaders and advisors who have completed their application process.

Haven't started the application process to become a volunteer? Take the first step!

Getting Started must be taken by at least one leader before starting to work with girls, and is a prerequisite for the Jump into Journeys workshop. Participants learn the basic knowledge needed to get started with their troop, including:
  • ​The elements of a meeting
  • Recommended content of the first few meetings
  • Available support options and resources
  • Basic information about safety and troop finances
  • Getting Started Coaches may also offer additional workshops in your area. For more information, contact your service unit manager or regional office. If an in-person workshop does not work for you, you may choose the independent learning option.
Preparing for your workshop: Nothing needed - come and enjoy!​
