Training Opportunities

You want to see girls happy, confident, strong, and ready to succeed. We want the same things for you as a volunteer! We know you’ve got a lot of questions about Girl Scouts and we’re ready to help you along the way. Your volunteer onboarding includes personal coaching, online learning, and a searchable website to find what you need when you need it.

Start your volunteer journey with online training courses you can complete from home. Log into gsLearn from the MyGS tab on our website menu. Other brief training courses cover troop management tools, how to earn badges and awards, ensuring girl safety, troop financial management, and more.

Special certifications available include First Aider training for CPR/First Aid/AED skills, Outdoor Education for campfire and outdoor cooking safety, Cookie Program training for managing inventory and recognitions, and Highest Awards training for coaching girls to earn the most prestigious awards in Girl Scouting.

When you’re ready, join us for the trainings listed below, or take a look at our growing collection of presentation videos and online trainings. Check the calendar on the Activities tab to find the in-person trainings near you.
