Our volunteer services staff has developed a variety of short enrichment workshops to help troop leaders in their volunteer roles. They are known as Short and Snappys and can be done at a service unit meeting or other local group gathering. They typically take less than 30 minutes to complete.
Here are three to choose from:
Planning a Girl Scout program – gives ideas on how to identify the program audience, put together a program plan, and what to do the day of the event to help things run smoothly. This enrichment is great for anyone planning a service unit event, a recruitment event, or interested in possibly becoming a Program Pathway Coordinator.
NYPENN Forms – this short and snappy discusses the various forms that are used by troops around NYPENN Pathways council. It explains the purpose of the form, the names, and ways to complete them. It talks about money earning forms, parent permission slips, troop activity applications and others and provides the reason why completing the forms is so important.
Safety Activity Checkpoints – this enrichment provides information on the safety activity checkpoints, the 12 safety guidelines, and provides a listing of all the checkpoints. These are helpful tips in keeping girls safe in Girl Scouting.
If you are interested in these or any of the other enrichment workshops available contact a Volunteer Services Manager in your area, or check the Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways website at www.gsnypenn.org
