New troops are beginning to form all around Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways jurisdiction. With that may come apprehension from a new volunteer as she/he learns their new role. Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways provides volunteers with a number of resources to help them in their positions.
Here are three:
Need ideas on activities to do with the girls in your troop that go with the journey your troop is working on? Find Journey taster activities on our council website. They offer great ideas for getting girls started on a journey.
Short and snappy trainings provide volunteers with a quick overview, or refresher, on a particular topic. Topics include, planning a trip, having a ceremony, and tips and tricks for leaders
New volunteer mentors – in some areas, and communities, we have new volunteer mentors available to assist new leaders. These are people who have been involved with Girl Scouts who can be available to answer questions, offer a helping hand at troop meetings, or provide guidance on what training to take or planning a troop year.
For information on these resources and the many other our council offers visit the council website at http://www.gsnypenn.org
