Volunteer Toolkit and My GS Training Schedule


The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a digital resource that supports troop leaders and co-leaders, making the process of running a troop easier and more efficient. Check out some of the toolkit’s top features below. Then watch the video playlist above for a detailed walk-through.

Through the VTK, troop leaders can:

  • Plan the troop’s calendar year
  • Email parents with one click
  • View the troop roster, renew girls’ memberships, and update their contact information
  • View Daisy, Brownie, and Junior Journeys and badges to plan for troop meetings
                o   There are three prepopulated year plans in the VTK for                     Daisy, Brownie, and Junior leaders, with 15 meetings each
  •    Customize meetings by troop year with other badge and Journey options.
  • NEW! Access the VTK as a multilevel troop (troops with a mix of girls in Daisy, Brownie, and Junior levels)
  • Explore individual meeting plans that show a breakdown of every meeting, including a list of the materials needed, and editable time allotments for each activity within a meeting
  • Record girls’ attendance at meetings and their badge and Journey achievements
  • NEW! Access 18 activities that now include a “Get Outside” option, which provides alternative outdoor options

What About Parents?

  • Parents can now access the VTK to see what their girl’s troop or group is doing (e.g, meeting information and which badges and Journeys she is working on).
