Volunteer Toolkit

The Volunteer Toolkit is a slick, web-based app that features a year plan calendar, troop meeting plans, tons of resources, and troop financials – all in one place!

Girls choose a year plan pre-populated with fun meetings and completely customizable to their interests. Leaders can email troop members right from the Toolkit, and families can see the calendar and year plan. Materials lists and colorful resources are easily printed or shared.

Seamless transition from desktop to tablet to smartphone makes it a breeze to plan and deliver great troop meetings. When girls earn badges and Journey awards, those achievements are recorded in the Toolkit when attendance is marked.

What else can it do? See our Volunteer Toolkit Cheat Sheet, or view these quick tutorial videos.
