Display your training accomplishments with pride and gain the confidence of Girl Scout troop parents with the Trained to Lead patch and charms. Charms are available for most courses. You'll automatically receive the patch and first charm when you complete Getting Started with Your Troop online and attend Intro to Girl Scouts.
Whether you’re a brand new troop leader or an experienced volunteer new to the troop leader role, leadership training will ensure that you know how to find resources, keep girls safe, provide girls with the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, understand troop finances, and more.
These two courses are required for new leaders (and strongly advised for co-leaders):
Start with Getting Started with Your Troop (online). New leaders and co-leaders automatically receive an email invitation from our online learning portal, Litmos. Don’t see an email? Check your spam folder or contact email@example.com for assistance. Once you’ve logged in and created a password, you can return to Litmos anytime by visiting sdgirlscouts.litmos.com.
Then take Intro to Girl Scouts. You’ll receive an email with a coupon for a free class after you complete Getting Started with Your Troop. Visit sdgirlscouts.org/events and pick a date, time, and class location. Select Register Now to sign up using your coupon code, if you wish. See our course cancellation policy.
