Quick Start for Volunteers

Volunteers are an essential part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program and fall product program! Help your Girl Scout or troop by becoming a troop cookie manager or troop fall manager in just three steps:

  2. Select volunteer role "Troop Cookie Manager" or "Troop Fall Manager" and complete background screening. (You must be registered in the correct role to receive the weekly product program emails In a Nutshell and Cookie Chat.)
  3. Complete training (see options below).

Note: Your troop must have a Wells Fargo bank account to participate in the product programs.
