Volunteers like you let their generosity, courage, and heart shine through in everything they do—and your Girl Scouts take notice. The best troop leaders don't have all the answers, but instead, they model lifelong learning.
Your role as a troop leader is to connect girls with opportunities to develop their skills and challenge them to think creatively about how they can make the world a better place.
Each troop chooses how they participate in Girl Scouts.
