Zoom is an online video conferencing tool that is easy and intuitive and can be used on laptops, tablets, and smartphones. Zoom is a great way to bring real-time, face-to-face connections to virtual experiences.
For meetings that will be 40 minutes or less, you can use a free personal account.
For meetings longer than 40 minutes, you can purchase your own discounted Girl Scout Zoom (gsZoom) license through our council.
Remember: virtual Girl Scout gatherings should follow the same adult-to-girl safety ratios as in-person gatherings.
Any GSCTX volunteer who is 18 years of age or older, registered as a volunteer for the 2022-2023 membership year, and has a current, eligible criminal background check on file.
You get an advanced license to use for facilitating Girl Scout meetings and events.
Your license will be assigned to you, the authorized user, and linked to your email address.
Your license will allow a 500 person capacity and unlimited time for each meeting.
Your license will allow waiting rooms, breakout rooms, and both meeting and webinar formats.
Your license will not allow Skype integrations, live streaming, or passing camera control to others.
Complete the form below to request a gsZoom license.
You will be asked to read and accept the gsZoom User Agreement and the Zoom Acceptable Use Policy.
You will be asked for credit card information to pay for your gsZoom license.
Council staff will verify eligibility and send an email containing your license information within three to five business days.
Begin leading Girl Scout meetings on your gsZoom account.
Your license will be active from the date of receipt of that email until July 31, 2023 at which time, you will be offered the option to renew.
gsZoom licenses cost $36. This one-time payment covers all license and use fees from August 1, 2022 through July 31, 2023. Payment can be made using personal or troop credit/debit card on the form below.
First-time troop leaders (one per troop) are eligible to receive a free gsZoom license for the 2022-2023 membership year.
All purchases are final. Once the submit button is pressed, the payment will be processed and will not be refundable. If a requester does not meet the requirements for a gsZoom license, they will be given the opportunity to register, claim a volunteer role, and/or complete a background check. If a volunteer no longer requires their gsZoom license prior to its expiration, they will need to notify GSCTX so that the account can be disabled per the GSUSA Zoom License User Agreement. However, no refunds will be given for unused months.
