We can’t change the lives of girls without YOU!
We've got in-depth trainings and workshops to help you make the Girl Scout experience safe and fun. Check out the Troop Leader Progression to learn what workshops need to be taken when or review our Adult Guide to Learning Opportunities to find the right events for you!
Get Started as a Troop Leader

||First Aid/CPR - Required for activity|
Nothing is more important than the safety of our girls! If the Safety Activity Checkpoints requires a First Aider to accompany girls' chosen activity, the First Aid/CPR training is a requirement so that everyone can be safe.
