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!
