GSUSA and River Valleys have designed training sessions that help you be effective in your volunteer position. Training sessions are available primarily online or paper-based self study. Some facilitated training sessions are offered at the service unit level.
Why Do I Need Training?
Training is offered to help volunteers gain the skills and knowledge to provide excellent Girl Scout program.
Which Training Sessions Are for Troop Leaders/Volunteers?
New leaders are required to complete River Valleys Orientation (10 minutes).
What if I Can’t Find the Training I Need?
If you can’t find a training session on your desired topic, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
Can I Use Troop Funds to Pay for Trainings?
Certain activities the girls may want to do require a specifically trained volunteer. If so, troop funds may be used for to pay associated fees because the money is “going to the girls.” River Valleys online trainings have no cost, but you may encounter costs for trainings offered by local experts (for instance first aid and CPR) that you may cover with troop funds.
