For Volunteers - November


Volunteer Trainings:

Join us for a Regional Day of Training on Saturday, November 18 in Glenwood, MN. Network and learn with other Girl Scout volunteers and leave prepared for your upcoming Girl Scout journey. Learning sessions include Troop Volunteer Training, Troop Finance, Songs and Games, and Ceremonies. Sign Up through Ebiz Today!

Save the Date: Winter Volunteer Training Retreat, January 5-7 at Camp Shingobee Timbers. 

Have a trainer come to you!

One training offered by Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin Lakes and Pines is a Ceremonies Training. In Girl Scouts, ceremonies play an integral part. Ceremonies reinforce values, pass on traditions, recognize accomplishments, strengthen friendships, and give life to the beliefs established in the Girl Scout Promise & Law. No matter what kind of ceremony you are having, good planning is essential to make the ceremony meaningful and stress-free. If your Service Unit is interested in a Ceremonies Training or other trainings offered by Girl Scouts please let us know.
