NEW! Volunteer Enrichment Program

We’re excited to launch the GSSNE Volunteer Enrichment Program!

The GSSNE Volunteer Enrichment Program provides personal and professional development opportunities to adult Girl Scout volunteers. Programs offered help build skills that can be used beyond the volunteer role and deepen volunteers’ connections to the world around them. Program listings can be found on the GSSNE Event Calendar, Event List, and are also listed below. They may be virtual and/or in-person, and require registration. Most programs are free, offered multiple times throughout the month, and space is usually limited so register early!

Whatever your volunteer role looks like, we hope you’ll join us for one or ALL of the programs!  All you need is a current GSSNE membership and background screening.

If there’s a topic you’d like to see added to the Volunteer Enrichment Program or if you have a skill that you’d like to turn into a program offering, please submit your ideas.

This year’s program will offer 5 program topics throughout the troop year:

We all want trusting, mutually respectful personal and professional relationships. At the heart of that is positive, open, and thoughtful communication.

Each Spring, GSSNE offers a free, nationwide workshop to Girl Scout volunteers to help them become stronger, more confident leaders. We’re working on the details of this year’s spotlighted session and will share them soon!
