What you do in Girl Scouting makes a difference
There are nearly 17,000 girls in Central Florida that are a part of the Girl Scout movement, where we build girls of courage, confidence and character. An additional 7,000 adult volunteers are currently helping to make Girl Scouting a reality for these many girls.
Without adults playing many pivotal roles, Girl Scouting couldn’t happen. Whether you’re a leader, learning facilitator, parent or guardian, mentor or play any other role, you awaken in girls their promise to develop to their full potential to make the world a better place. Research shows that the influence one caring adult has on a child will last a lifetime. Thank you for reaching out to these 17,000 girls!
Knowledgeable volunteers are essential to provide girls with fun and safe experiences that develop leadership. Girl Scouts of the USA and Girl Scouts of Citrus Council provide learning opportunities, both required and personal enrichment, for volunteers. We are shifting the focus from “training” to the much broader “adult learning.”
To be an adult volunteer in a leadership position, you will need to complete the following process:
Step 1: Complete the Volunteer Application/Consent Form and receive a favorable background check.
Step 2: Complete Girl Scouting 101 (Online).
Step 3: Meet with a Service Unit team member for your Troop/Group Welcome.
Step 4: Volunteer Essentials (classroom setting – required within 2 months of appointment)
Step 5: Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE) (classroom setting – required within 3 months of appointment)
Additional topics will be covered in other learning opportunities for the volunteer’s further development.
