Training and Online Support

Our volunteer training is designed to engage you and to help you succeed!  Offerings for adults include essential required training and a wide variety of enrichment classes.

Participating in classes taught in-person, gives you the information you need to know, but also, you get the added benefit of connecting with other volunteers and sharing your ideas and experiences. 

Online training is informative, can be taken at your convenience, and the content for each online course serves as a resource that you can return to when you need to revisit specific information.

Leadership Summits are offered in late-summer and fall and are large events  in locations all around the state. In addition to a variety of learning opportunities, Leadership Summits are a great way for all volunteers to get energized with networking opportunities, keynote speakers and participating in Girl Scout traditions.

Additionally, watch for other training events tied to specific themes, such as outdoor skills and travel, usually offered in the spring.
