The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a digital resource that supports troop leaders and co-leaders, making the process of running a troop easier and more efficient.
The Volunteer Toolkit is a customizable planning tool where you can find suggested meeting plans for most badges, access activity guides and badge requirements, track your Girl Scouts’ achievements, and so much more. It’s the digital planning assistant that will help you power a fun-filled—and organized—Girl Scout year.
You’ll find the Volunteer Toolkit via the left menu bar of MyGS in My Account. It’s accessible on any desktop, tablet, or mobile device.
Active Troop Leaders and Co-Leaders have access to the Volunteer Toolkit to assist in planning their year of programming and activities. There should be at least two volunteers with access to the same troop account in the VTK. Leaders that lead multiple troops have access as well.
New for Summer 2022 the VTK will only retain 3 years of data including Year Plans and Finance Reports. Anything older will be cleared on August 1, 2022. Leaders/volunteers should download copies of any data they would prefer to retain. Print and download buttons can be found on each tab in the VTK. Additionally, on August 1 designates the opening of the new year plan and new program roll-out.
