myGS - Volunteer Toolkit

Simplified troop management

The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) helps troop volunteers get what they need–when they need it. Troops can use the VTK to plan out their whole year and have a roster of all troop member information, accessible via computer or mobile device, as well as tools to facilitate communication between parents and troop leaders.

The VTK is designed to help improve the girl and volunteer experience. Online resources will help volunteers work with their troops to plan troop activities, custom-fit with what their troop loves to do and coordinate it with a Journey. 

Want to learn the ins and outs of how optimize your use of the Volunteer Toolkit?  Check out our e-learning course, myGS: Troop Management Central.
