Goals for the New Year

What are some of your goals for the New Year for Girl Scouts?


What are some of your goals for the New Year? Making goals can provide you with a road map to success. This does not mean everything you do will be successful, but it will provide you with a vision in what you would like to accomplish.

  • Do you need to become more organized as a leader?
  • Do you need to enlist the help of others?
  • Are you needing to recruit additional members?
  • Are you in need of organizing your paperwork?

Volunteering as a leader can be very rewarding. It can also be time-consuming and being organized will help keep things running smoothly. Think about things which will help you to achieve as a leader and help your girls.

Each leader within our service unit uses a volunteer notebook to organize. Each leader will have a calendar of events and organize the remaining sections as it is best for their troop records.

Here are a few of the things in my volunteer notebook:

  • Calendar of events
  • Training List
  • Troop information
  • Monthly ideas
  • Troop recordings of things done for the year
  • Patch Programs
  • Misc.

Thanks to our service unit manager for providing a lot of the materials each of us needs. You can add to your notebook to make it personally efficient for you and your troop.

Girl Scout Law for Cookie Sales

Girl Scout Law for cookie sales resource.

Hello to the New Year in 2012

Girl Scouting is an awesome adventure. It is a great time to work with younger girls and seeing them grow in different ways. In our district cookie selling begins at the end of this week.

It is hard to believe it is this time of the year again! For those of you leaders, or parents, who help out during cookie season, I thought you would enjoy reading the Girl Scout Law for Selling Cookies.
