Welcome to River Valleys. Thank you for giving your time and expertise to help girls become confident, courageous and thoughtful leaders. In order to provide you with the best possible volunteer experience, we have developed new required trainings for the 2013 membership year.

All new volunteers are required to complete Girl Scouting 101, a Girl Scouts of the USA webinar providing an overview of the Girl Scout experience, resources available to volunteers and basic safety requirements.

All new troop leaders are required to complete Girl Scouting 101River Valleys Orientation and an in-person Fast Start meeting.

  • River Valleys Orientation includes information specific to River Valleys and tips about starting a troop and running troop meetings.
  • Fast Start provides each new leader with a face-to-face connection and local resources.

Girl Scouting 101 and River Valleys Orientation can be completed online or in self-study format by emailing Training@girlscoutsrv.org. To complete Fast Start, please contact River Valleys or your Service Unit.

If you are an existing volunteer who did not complete the required Leadership Essentials training last year, you are encouraged to complete Girl Scouting 101 and River Valleys Orientation. If you already completed previously required training sessions, you are not required to complete the new 2013 trainings.
