Start a Troop
A Girl Scout troop, or a group of Girl Scouts and volunteers that meet regularly, is one of many ways to participate in Girl Scouting. Troops set their own schedule for meetings, decide what activities they want to enjoy, and find ways to improve their community.
Learn how to start your own local troop and help Girl Scouts make a difference in their community.
Lead the way! Troop Leaders are memory makers; they lead and guide a group of girls through Girl Scouting. They take the girls’ interests, abilities, and opinions into consideration when planning out their fun. As girls get older, Troop Leaders guide more than lead, but continue to help them grow, learn, and do amazing things!
You’ve got the troop leader’s back! Work alongside the troop leader and making memories with the girls, mentoring them as they make new friends, try new things, and explore the world.
Coordinate the annual Fall Product Program at the troop level. Manage the program and money, and then watch the girls light up when they reach their goals, learn something new, and squish the stuffed animal they didn’t buy, but earned!
Coordinate the annual Girl Scout Cookie Program at the troop level. Set up cookie booths, manage inventory and money, and witness as girls turn into #CookieBosses-setting goals, making sales, and earning rewards!
Got a knack for numbers? A passion for all things accounting? This role works with girls and the troop leader to keep troop finances in order. Troop treasurers work alongside the troop leader to prepare the annual troop finance report.
Want to work with girls? These volunteers play a big role in making the troop run smoothly. They’re an extra set of eyes, ears, and hands that allow the troop to safely explore the world around them.
