Volunteer Resource Center
Training and Development
From the very beginning, Girl Scouts has been about developing girls' leadership. Now we're doing it better than ever with national, outcomes-based program activities that are designed to guide girls along a life-long path to… lead with courage when they speak out on issues they care about and take active roles in their communities; lead with confidence when they make the most of their strengths and feel empowered to make a difference in their lives and beyond; lead with character when they act with integrity and compassion, making decisions that promote the well-being of themselves and others; …as they continue to make the world a better place.
Policies and Guidelines
Dedicated volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization. Each day we celebrate the accomplishments of our over 12,000 girls and it’s important that we celebrate our 4000+ volunteers too!
- The Volunteer Message Board is a place to share ideas, ask a question, link to a troop across the council, invite girls to a service unit event, or share the great work your girls have been doing! It's up to you.

- Click here for a list of Certificates of Insurance (CoI) currently on file with GSCWM. If a Girl Scout Troop or group is planning a High Risk Activity, check the list to be certain that a (CoI) is on file, and that the date of your trip is prior to the expiration date of the CoI.
If the organization is not on the list, you will need to get a CoI from the organization and forward it with your Activity and Travel Form to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Conversations with Volunteers
Conversations with Volunteers are one-hour get-togethers with no pre-set agenda. The time is spent having productive dialogue about what's on your mind. These conversations happen with Pat Hallberg, CEO, Elizabeth Brooke-Willbanks, Director of Membership Volunteerism & Program, and Colleen Holmes, Chief of Workplace & Public Strategies. They began in November, 2012 and have proven to be an effective beginning to breaking down barriers between volunteers and "council". Conversations with Volunteers will continue to occur each month (excluding the summer months). Please join the conversation at a location nearest you:
R.S.V.P. to Brandi Barcomb at email@example.com.
Would you like to host a Conversation with Volunteers in your town? If so, please contact Fran Levine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
