Important Information About Training

Why Take Training?

Leadership training goes beyond building skills and sharing information, as important as that may be. Training builds a leader's self confidence. Confident Leaders—who know how to use their resources—naturally feel pride knowing how they play an important role in the development of girls. Training is also fun! In addition, Girl Scout training:
  • Ensures safe and successful delivery of the Girl Scout program.
  • Supports the Girl Scout Mission and initiatives.
  • Reflects current trends, needs, and interests of today’s volunteers.

Course Formats

In order to meet a variety of needs in terms of schedule and preferred learning method, classes are available in several formats: on-line, in-person, and/or home study.

On-line: Classes taken on-line give participants the chance to take courses when and where they need them. Find these courses using the Search for a Course page.

In-person: In-person classes are taught in structured classes. This gives participants the opportunity to work collaboratively, participate in group activities, and connect with others involved in Girl Scout volunteerism. Find these courses using the Search for a Course page.

Home Study: Any class listed as available in home study format may be obtained by selecting the ‘home study’ format on your registration form. Electronic files will be sent to you by email. You must complete the Learning Assessment or Learning Log and return to GSNETX within 30 days of receipt. Find these courses using the Search for a Course page.

 

How Do I Find and Register for a Class?
