Beyond the Basics for Troop Leaders and Advisors

Troop leaders and advisors are encouraged to participate in training beyond the required age level training. Beyond the Basics offers adults valuable information to enhance the experience they have with the girls in their groups. These classes are open to leaders of all age levels.

We realize that many leaders will be eager to learn more after their Leadership Essentials class. Our council  team of Learning Facilitators is developing supplemental courses and materials. As these become available, they will be added to this calendar and announced through other means.
