TIME SAVING FEATURES:
New Technology Coming Soon!
Wish there was a way to keep everything for the entire Girl Scout year in one place? This June, Girl Scouts will introduce the Volunteer Toolkit, this new web app will help leaders make the most out of every troop meeting.
Meeting Planner: Leaders can plan their entire year in the Volunteer Toolkit, adding meeting information, field trips, events, and important dates. The Toolkit features easy-to-use functionality including dragging and dropping, allows leaders to keep attendance, and track the badges that each girl earns.
Parent Communication Tool: The Volunteer Toolkit allows all leaders to manage troop contacts and communicate directly with families through the app. Leaders can generate customizable emails that let families know what to expect at the next troop meeting.
Badge and Journey Planning: For Daisy, Brownie and Junior troops, the Volunteer Toolkit comes with pre-populated plans for select badges and Journeys — it’s a complete year of Girl Scouts at your fingertips! These pre-made plans provide everything leaders need to get started, including meeting outlines and supply lists. Cadette through Ambassador troop badge and Journey programs are not pre-populated due to the highly girl-led and individual nature of these troops. Instead, older girls and their leaders can use the “Create Your Own Year Plan” to map out their activities and goals.
Online Troop Catalog: The troop catalog makes it easier than ever for new girls to find a troop in their area, and for adults to find and select volunteer roles.
When you re-register in April, you’ll be imported into the new system and gain premium access to its exciting resources when it goes live in mid-June. From May 15-June 12, the membership system will be unavailable while we’re transferring to the new system. Re-register by April 30 to ensure your information is automatically imported.
To access all of the features on the new system, current members will receive an important email from email@example.com this June with login information that allows members to set up their profiles. Be on the lookout!
No more hunting for the right activity or book — everything a leader needs is right on the app! Fully compatible with computers, tablets or phones — it is so convenient! The goal is to reduce the time leaders must invest in Girl Scouts by giving them the needed information and resources in a way that makes sense for busy, modern lives.
