Troop Leader Resources

Our girls are so excited that you have stepped up to be a troop leader and help them become the leaders of tomorrow.

Even though we're doing things differently these days, Girl Scouts offers volunteer support and tools to help you keep girls engaged and exploring their world. Girl Scout troops may cautiously begin in-person troop meetings, depending on guidance from local officials. If you prefer to keep meetings virtual at this time, that's great too! Follow the instructions and resources below to get started.

  • Virtual Meeting Resources »
