Thank you for choosing to volunteer as a Troop Leader with the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Girl Scout troop leaders prepare girls for a lifetime of leadership, success, and adventure in a safe, all-girl, no-limits environment. Imagine the excitement, memories, and impact you’ll have helping your girls discover what interests them and how to make a difference in their world. With you as their troop leader, they’ll go as far as their imaginations can take them.
In every Girl Scout troop, two or more leaders work with their girls to plan a progressive series of engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, exploring science, getting outdoors, selling cookies, and doing community service projects. Troop leaders are supported by Friends and Family troop volunteers, online training and planning tools, a local team of experienced Girl Scout volunteers, and dedicated staff.
Below are the training requirements for the Troop Leader role.
