Volunteer Tool Kit (VTK)

The Volunteer Toolkit is a digital resource that supports troop leaders and co-leaders, making the process of running a troop easier and more efficient.

Through the Volunteer Toolkit, troop leaders can:

  • Plan the troop’s calendar year.

  • View Daisy through Ambassador Journeys and badges (to plan for troop meetings), including pre-populated tracks for younger and older Multi-Level troop groups (K–5 and 6–12).

  • Explore individual meeting plans with how-to guides to run your meetings

  • Enter the troop’s finances.

  • Easily locate important troop resources

Virtual Tips & Tricks

Virtual meetings are a regular feature in a hybrid troop experience. Leaders and Girls are leveraging online meetings for talking and planning, followed by in-person get-togethers for fun and learning experiences! When in-person meetings are not possible, virtual meetings facilitate a sense of belonging, which is the foundation of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

Zoom for Girl Scouts

Discounted Zoom licenses are now available for Volunteers who want to meet and participate in virtual programs virtually! For only $36/Year (Regularly $150!), your Girls can stay connected, continue building their skills, and have a blast no matter where they are.
