New leaders can get many of their basic questions answered about beginning their work with a troop by watching the great videos posted on the GSEMA website. The best videos to start with include Family Meetings, Plan Your Year, and Letting Girls Take the Lead. But there's no need to stop there. Check out all the topics and watch as they apply to your troop's growth and interests. If you have questions,please contact Pi Fong, our Volunteer Support Specialist.

Example planning guides:
The Volunteer Toolkit* is a new digital planning tool that gives volunteers resources and program content to get the year started—and keep it going smoothly! Fully customizable, the toolkit is digitally responsive so volunteers can plan and prepare practically anywhere.
Girls have more fun when they can shape their own experience, do hands-on activities, and work together as teams. With the new toolkit, girls and leaders can explore meeting topics and program activities together, and follow the fun as they plan their Girl Scout year.
*Member authentication is required.
A helpful note on the GSEMA website: at the lowest right hand corner there is Volunteer Quick Links and under that are links to the most common pages used by leaders. It can be overwhelming to start. The training, organizing, paperwork, badges and activities. Even experienced leaders will get confused or overwhelmed with new "guidelines" Girl Scouts adds. Just sit back take a deep breath and know that it's about girls doing things together -cherish their smiles and watch confidence grow in each girl!
