Online Support for Volunteers

We’ve got you, Girl Scout volunteers!

My GS & Volunteer Toolkit

The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a digital resource that supports troop leaders, service unit volunteers, trainers, and parents/caregivers of individually registered girls, making the process of program delivery 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 Volunteer Toolkit, troop leaders can:
  • Plan the troop’s calendar year
  • Email parents with one click.
  • View the troop roster, including adults registered and background check eligibility dates, and update contact information.
  • View Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador Journeys and badges to plan for troop meetings.
  • Customize meetings by troop year with other badge and Journey options.
  • Access VTK as a multilevel troop (troops with a mix of girls in all Girl Scout 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.
  • Add council or custom troop events to the troop’s calendar.
  • Easily locate resources, such as Safety Activity Checkpoints, and GSKWR’s Pinterest page!
  • Access activities that now include a “Get Outside” option, which provides alternative outdoor options. And a virtual option for hybrid Girl Scout meetings. 
What about Parents?

Parents/caregivers of girls in troops 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).

Parents/caregivers of individually registered girls can access the VTK for programming information, badge requirements, and activities that fulfill badge requirements.
