Getting Started as a Troop

Are you a new troop leader? We’ve got you covered. Check out the New Leader Learning Progression—an easy-to-navigate checklist to keep you on track during your first year!

Training for Volunteers

GSSNE’s online learning platform, gsLearn (accessed via sign-on through your MYGS login), is continually updated with new volunteer trainings, documents, resources, videos, and more! Whether you’re a troop, service unit, or council volunteer, there’s something there for you.

First year as a leader? You should begin your learning with the Successful Leader Learning Series, Girl Scouts Outdoors, and Troop Finances. After that, there are lots of courses to explore as your leadership adventure continues.

Second year and beyond? After completing your first-year learning courses, you can explore opportunities for returning leaders. The menu of options continues to grow!

Planning Your Troop Year: Volunteer Toolkit

The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a digital K–12 program tool that provides troop leaders with program content, troop management tools, and other resources to make running a troop easier than ever. If you’re already a registered troop leader, click MYGS to log in and get started. 

Fall Product and Cookie Programs

Resources are available online for Fall Product and Cookie Program sellers and volunteers, including training videos, live webinars, forms, guides, and more. Visit our Product Programs page for more information! 

Beyond Troop Meetings
