Local Support and Training

Girl Scouts of Central Illinois has several trainings to support you through your volunteer committment. 

Basic Leader Training - This is one of your first trainings. A membership staff person will sit down with you either in person or virtual to guide you through the basics of being a leader and volunteering.

gsLearn - This is an online learning platform that houses a variety of learning modules that can be completed at your own pace. This learning can be done on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

Volunteer Essentials - This new digital edition of our Volunteer Essentials guide is designed to support busy troop leaders on-the-go. You can easily find what you need to get started on your Girl Scout journey and search for answers throughout the troop year. Think of Volunteer Essentials as your encyclopedia to Girl Scout volunteering: it’s here when you need it, but there’s no need to read it all today.Volunteer Toolkit
