What is Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events? 

Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events is a 25 minute, self-paced, streamlined online orientation to Girl Scouting.   

Who is Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events’ intended audience?

Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events’ intended audience is series and event volunteers who are new to the organization. (The events pathway is a chance for volunteers to share their time and skills with girls in a one‐time event under a compressed  time-frame, such as a day or a weekend; the series pathway allows volunteers to meet regularly with girls but for only a few weeks or months, not for a full year.)   

Volunteers in the Troop, camp, virtual, and travel pathways should watch Girl Scouting 101; volunteers in the series and event Pathways should watch Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events.  When they arrive at the website, there is a choice for English or Spanish videos.    

Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events is broken down into six parts: • 

  • What  Girl Scouts Do (the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, Journeys, Girl’s Guides, Bronze/Silver/Gold Awards) • 
  • Mission, Promise, and Law • 
  • Girl Scout Cookies • 
  • Staying Safe (Girl Scouts Safety Standards) • 
  • Ages and Stages: What Girl Scouts Are Like (girl development for each grade level) • 
  • Ready To  Work with Girls? (how to move forward with local Councils; how they are supported)
