At GSNI, we know that our volunteers make it possible to build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place. That's why we are so excited to tell you about our upcoming training workshop, S.T.E.W. Christina Kirsch, Volunteer Support Specialist, and Chris Alsip, Volunteer Trainer and S.T.E.W. Committee Planner will tell you all about it below. 

 

From Christina:

 

Even though the temperatures still slip below zero, a thought of spring is coming our way. You may notice that we have changed our outdoor trainings a bit. In the fall, we introduced Indoor Overnight Trainings as a face-to-face training. In addition, we have added interactive activities in our trainings to give a better understanding of Adult/Girl planning. These classes will be held in the spring as well. We have a better scheduling process with our outdoor facilitators to schedule Outdoor Overnight Trainings in advance and with registration opening the same time each year. This schedule will help all of our volunteers plan for the trainings they will need to take their troop camping.

Typically, when you think of a Girl Scout Volunteer, you think of a Troop Leader. But, there are many other volunteer opportunities available with GSNI! Some include working with girls, and others include connecting a volunteer’s special talents with our areas of need! Also, some available positions do not require a year-long commitment.
