FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Why do I need training? Because it all begins with you! Our volunteers are the heart and soul of Girl Scouting, and we know you are taking time out of your busy schedule to lend your talents to girls who participate in Girl Scouting. By participating in required trainings, you will have the necessary tools to help girls discover, connect, and take action to become tomorrow’s leaders. These concepts are the three keys to leadership, the backbone of our Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Training will strengthen your understanding of the Girl Scout movement and your commitment as a volunteer. It will enable you to feel more comfortable in your position, ensuring that both you and the girls you mentor will have a rewarding and purposeful experience. Must I register for Girl Scout training events? Yes, pre-registration is required for Girl Scout trainings. Some sessions fill quickly. Early registration is encouraged. How far in advance must I register for trainings? For most training sessions, registration closes 5 days before the date of the training. The deadlines ensure that our volunteer trainers are ready and prepared for the participants who will be attending and guarantee that all logistics and materials are in place. • Blended Learning First-Aider registration closes 14 days prior to the date of the skills session in order to allow you time to complete the online portion of the training prior to attending your skills session. How do I register? Registration is as easy as 1 or 2 or 3! 1. Online registration is available for most training sessions.
