Troop leaders connect girls with opportunities to develop their skills and challenge them to think creatively about how they can make the world a better place. With the help of a co-leader, troop leaders will organize troop meetings 1-2 times per month for 60-90 minutes.
Our research shows that girls need to shape their own paths to develop leadership skills. Because of this, we have a digital resource, the Volunteer Toolkit, to guide troop leaders through organizing meetings and accomplishing badges and journeys. Plus, every troop leader has a team of council staff members and other volunteers to provide guidance and share resources.
No matter where or how you volunteer, you’ll make a difference in the lives of girls. If you are unable to commit to becoming a troop leader, but would like to still impact girls in your community, find other ways to volunteer!
