Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
More than 400 girls are waiting to join Girl Scouts in San Diego, and we need volunteers to show them the way! As a Girl Scout troop leader or co-leader, you’ll help start a new troop in your area and work with the girls once or twice each month to help them learn and have fun together. You’ll be their cheerleader, guide and mentor, introducing them to new experiences that show them they’re capable of more than they ever imagined. The memories you share will last long after the meeting is over. Start today!
Who can start a troop? Just about anyone! Parents, teachers, professionals, college students, military personnel, women or men. As a new leader, you’ll receive plenty of training and resources to get started - no experience required.
What’s the leader's role? With the help of a strong support team and useful materials, a leader holds meetings for their troop of girls and adults. Meetings are an hour or two, and usually consist of skill-building and badge earning activities. Leaders also communicate with troop parents and their local Girl Scout support team for any help they might need.
How much time will this take? It's up to you! You decide how many times your troop meets. The time you give as a troop leader is valuable to us, and we'll give you tools that let you make the most of it. On average, leaders commit five hours per month, with room to grow if you choose to do additional activities.
