regional-kickoffAre you a Girl Scouts of NYPENN Pathways volunteer looking for some additional training and support for your role in working with girls? We offer many adult training workshops to help! You can choose from online options as well as in person training. Here are three being offered:

Need more information about the Volunteer Toolkit? We have a webinar for you! — VTK Webinar 101, March 29 or April 7th, 7pm, online. Why VTK? The Volunteer Toolkit allows leaders to communicate with parents via email and even attach resources and forms, track attendance, and track award achievements. Daisy to Junior leaders can choose from stocked badge requirements and Journey activities. Teen troops are able to schedule events and activities that are important to them. Safety information is right in the VTK for easy access. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

Early bird renewal in the member community — April 3, 7pm, online. It’s time to join us for another great year of Girl Scouting! We’re busy planning lots of exciting things for the upcoming Girl Scout year and we want you to be a part of it all! Our webinar will cover the enhanced renewal functionality of the Member Community for troops; highlight the 2017 Early Bird incentives; and provide an overview of the renewal and updating process for individuals and families. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
