A troop is a group of Girl Scouts who gather weekly, monthly, or quarterly. Adult volunteers guide troops as youth members select exciting hands-on activities and projects, try new things, and cheer each other on.
Troop leaders work directly with a group of Girl Scouts to mentor and guide them through their Girl Scout troop experience. Leaders help with troop communications, scheduling, and helping Girl Scouts explore their passions and interests.
Assistant troop leaders work directly with a Girl Scout troop and support the troop leader in facilitating Girl Scout activities.
Troop product managers provide support to their troop during Fall Product and/or the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Product managers coordinate annual product sales at the troop level. They set up cookie booths, manage inventory and money, and watch the Girl Scouts light up when they reach their goals and earn rewards for being the best cookie sellers ever!
Troop treasurers manage the troop bank account and report on the troop's finances in accordance with Girl Scout of Western Washington policies.
Troop helpers support and assist Girl Scout troops on an occasional basis. This could include assisting with driving, activity planning, snacks, money management, or other tasks necessary to keep the troop running smoothly from week to week.
