One of the resources that Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways provides to volunteers is training and adult learning opportunities. These opportunities provide volunteers with a chance to increase their knowledge and skills in working with girls, or in whatever volunteer role they choose.
There are many learning opportunities to choose from! Some are required of troop leaders and co-leaders, like Girl Scouting 101 which covers the basics of Girl Scouts, such as ways to participate and the mission, promise, and law. Others are enrichments such as ceremonies and traditions, which helps volunteers to learn specifics about planning and implementing different ceremonies within their troops or service units.
There is age level training, new leader mentor training, training on outdoor cooking, some designed especially for service teams, and outdoor training.
With so many to choose from volunteers are sure to be able to discover something new, connect with other volunteers, and take action to increase their own knowledge and skills which helps every girls’ experience a better one!
