Time for Girl Scouts

Thank you for being a Time for Girl Scouts Troop Leader!  We’re excited to work with you, as you impact girls’ lives, helping them to build courage, confidence and character and make the world a better place.

 Here are the simple steps to complete the process:

  1. Register Online
  2. Complete a Background Check
  3. Complete your Online Training 
  4. Choose your program: As a Time for Girl Scouts Troop Leader, you get to choose a troop program from one of the following:
    • JOURNEYS
      A Girl Scout Journey is one of the best, most fun ways for girls to experience the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.  The following, most popular Journeys have been selected to be used for Series Troops and can be completed in 6-8 meetings.
      • Grades K-1, “Three Cheers for Animals” Journey
      • Grades 2-3, “Wonders of Water” Journey
      • Grades 4-5, “Get Moving” Journey

Now that you’ve completed the process, it’s time to set up your troop and the first meeting. Every school district is assigned a Community Development Manager (CDM) that works directly with volunteers, assisting them as needed.  To find out who your CDM is, contact the Girl Scouts of Eastern Missouri Service Center at 314.592.2313.
