Opportunity Catalog Survey

The Opportunity Catalog (Opp Cat) is an online listing of spaces available in troops within our council (NH and VT). The listing shares troop meeting information, day, time, location, details about what the troop likes to do and openings available in the troop. The Opp Cat is how girls (and adults) can choose how they want to participate in Girl Scouts based on what fits best with their needs and schedules. It is the Troop Leader’s responsibility to keep their troop listing up to date throughout the GS year.

Thank you for being a Troop Leader!

 I have reviewed and understand the GSUSA Safety guidelines for adult/girl ratios.
