What It Takes to Be a Girl Scout Leader
Are you thinking about being a Girl Scout leader?
Are you concerned that you don't have what it takes?
Are you thinking you don't have enough time?
To be a leader you need:
• a love of children (even if they drive you a little nuts sometimes)
• a desire to encourage girls to become the best they can be
• see yourself as part of a team
• 8 hours a month for meetings and planning
• to be trained (orientation in North Plainfield, 2 courses at Council)
As a leader you get to:
• decide your troop meeting time, place and frequency
• decide how small or large you want your troop to be
• decide what you do at the meetings
• decide how involved your troop becomes in community events
• meet with other leaders in town once a month to network, plan, and provide and receiver support
• participate in Council run activities, programs and training as you like
• help decide how the leadership responsibilities in your troop are managed
• help shape the lives of girls by being involved with an organization whose goal is to build girls into confident, caring women
As a troop you need:
• two adults at each meeting, trip or event
• a first aider on any trip
• a camp certified adult on any camping trip
• to work on badges, participate in service projects and community events as desired
• to have fun!
