For the safety of our girls and volunteers we do not give specific locations of our courses or properties online. The address and directions will be included in your course confirmation.
Courses are scheduled in locations based on need in an area and the availability of facilitators. If you can not make any of the scheduled courses you can call 1-888-474-9686 or email email@example.com to ask to be put on a wait list. The wait list is used to determine where future courses should be held and people on the wait list are contacted when new courses are scheduled in your region.

After returning a volunteer application and criminal background check, all volunteers must take Girl Scouting 101 (http://training.girlscouts.org) which is an on-line course. It is an orientation to the Girl Scout mission, vision and goals
The second step for many volunteers is “Volunteer Essentials” This training covers council policies, guidelines, resources and contacts. “Volunteer Essentials” is provided by the Community Learning Coordinator in your community team.
Volunteers who will be working with girls in troops must take “Troop FUNdamentals” which provides the basic information needed for planning and running successful troop meetings, including and in-depth focus on delivering girls the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. It covers the roles and responsibilities of the Girl Scout leader, methods of obtaining parent and guardian support, important elements of troop meetings, girl and adult planning, finances, how to evaluate with girls, and crisis and risk management.
First Aid and CPR is required for groups engaging in physically demanding activities, activities involving a potential for injury or when taking trips away from the regular meeting place. Outdoor Skills is required for adults taking girls on day hike, cooking in the outdoors, spending an overnight outdoors, and camping.
You will receive a confirmation when we process your registration form. This does not mean the course has met minimum. You should assume that the course is happening unless you hear otherwise. If your registration is processed and the course is already full, you will be notified immediately. Confirmation and cancellation notices are sent either by letter or email.
You must cancel at least three full business days prior to the day of training to receive a refund of course fees. Failure to show for a course without proper notification will result in loss of payment.
If you have registered for a no fee adult learning course and need to cancel, you still must cancel three full business days prior to the day of the training, so that we can open the training to other volunteers on a wait list.
Yes. Courses that do not meet the minimum number of participants required will be cancelled.

No. Participants must register on their own.
If you have documentation of your completion of “Volunteer Essentials” or a troop leadership course with another Girl Scout Council, you will only need a specific orientation to the policies, procedures and practices of the Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains.
