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 CalendarEvent List, at gssne.org/volunteerenrichment, 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.

Here are our upcoming programs: 

February  
Youth Mental Health First Aid
February 5, 2022 from 9-12pm

In this Youth Mental Health First Aid certification class, you will learn a five-step action plan that will enable you to provide assistance to a teen until professional treatment is obtained or until a crisis is resolved. Completion of this course results in a three-year Youth Mental Health First Aid certificate.

Healthy Relationships
6:30-7:30 pm
February 10, 2022 

We all want trusting, mutually respectful personal and professional relationships. At the heart of that is positive, open, and thoughtful communication. In this program, we’ll explore what it means to be a genuinely engaged listener, we’ll look at ways to improve interpersonal relationships, and how to understand and give feedback in a way which truly shows our appreciation for others. 

April
Archery Level 1 Certification
April 30, 2022 from 9-12pm (online and in-person requirements must be satisfied)

The USA Archery Level 1 Instructor certification course provides graduates the necessary tools to maintain a high level of safety both on and off the archery range for camps and beginner archery programs. 

Leadership Workshop
Dates and time TBD

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!
