Because we want you to have the best experience possible as a Girl Scout volunteers, we have lots of learning opportunities for you. But before you take a look at the course offerings, please make sure to review our training policies and procedures!

Troop Volunteer Training
Troops are required to have two approved, unrelated, trained leaders. As a leader you are required to take  the online class Troop Volunteers, Part 1: The Adventure Begins. After 2-4 meetings, you must attend the follow-up face-to-face class, Troop Volunteers Part 2: The Adventure Continues.

  1. Troop Volunteers, Part 1: The Adventure Begins!
    When you and at least one other unrelated, registered, and approved adult complete this course, you will be able to start meeting with your troop! In this online, introductory training, you will learn the basics of being a Girl Scout Troop Leader.

  2. Troop Volunteers, Part 2: The Adventure Continues!

That’s when you will attend this face-to-face interactive training, designed for new and experienced troop volunteers, alike. Bring your questions, experiences, and co-leaders to get answers and ideas, to review best practices, and to bolster your knowledge, skills, and understanding of working with a Girl Scout Troop in Maine.
