Troop Leader Tool Kit

Girl Scouts Heart of Central California depends on our dedicated volunteers to carry out the Girl Scout programs. More than 10,500 adults volunteer their time and talents to make a difference in girls’ lives. Whether you have an hour, a day, a weekend or more, the energy you share with instill confidence in girls that will last a lifetime.

Use the tools found in the left navigation to explore and utilize resources that we have provided just for you!

You will find field trip ideas and suggested activities to incorporate into the new journeys. We have provided tips on how to have your troop "girl led" or how to get a program aid to help out at your meetings.

This series, made possible by the Dove Self-Esteem Fund, uses a multi-disciplinary approach to building self-esteem and self-confidence in girls through storytelling and self expression. The key themes of holistic health, body image, diversity, media literacy and taking action are interwoven throughout for all grade levels.
