Nothing is more important within Girl Scouting than ensuring the health and safety of girls. Safety management will help you identify risks, avoid injury and illness, and help you respond to emergencies if needed.
Girl Scouts covers safety from all angles in several resources available to volunteers:
Volunteer Essentials Chapter
Our council's volunteer handbook devotes an entire chapter to volunteers' responsibilities for protecting girls' emotional and physical well-being
Safety Activity Checkpoints
In-depth safety information and tips that adult volunteers use for Girl Scout sports and activities; girls can also use these checkpoints to ready their group for a girl-led activity.
