We’re excited to participate in a national pilot program, providing new Daisy Girl Scout (K-1) troop leaders with an amazing resource. Starting in Fall 2023, new Daisy troop leaders in our council will receive a monthly supply box filled with step-by-step instructions, ready-to-go supplies, and thoughtful script suggestions.
This complimentary resource will follow the Daisy First Year Troop Plan and be delivered directly to troop leaders.
This month’s Daisy supply box gives Girl Scout volunteers everything needed for two Girl Scout meetings. In your next meeting, Daisy Girl Scouts play games and work in groups to discover what it means to be courageous and strong and put what they learn into practice. Then, in the following meeting, Daisies explore how to be responsible for their words and actions.
Check out the resources below to help prepare for your next troop meetings:
The Welcome supply box is all about giving new Girl Scout volunteers, Daisies, and their families a big Girl Scout welcome. Girl Scout volunteers receive everything they need to lead their first troop meeting. Girl Scouts play games to get to know one another, learn a few favorite Girl Scout traditions, and earn their first badge, the Promise Center. While Daisies have fun, their parents/caregivers meet one another, discuss shared goals, and learn about the world of Girl Scouts and ways to help the troop.
Check out the resources below to help prepare for the first troop meeting:
As a Girl Scout volunteer, you’re part of a community. Whether you have questions about creating memorable experiences for your troop or the logistics of setting up a meeting, we’re here to support you every step of the way.
Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois is excited to have several departments and staff to be supporting our new Daisy Leadership Teams and Troops. If you have any questions you can reach any staff team at email@example.com.
Did you know you have a network of local volunteers who are part of your Girl Scout team? Tap into the larger Girl Scout community by connecting with your service unit.
What's a service unit?
A service unit is a group of Girl Scout volunteers working in your local area to support troops. The service unit (or SU) team is an essential support system that organizes training, mentorship, Girl Scout events, and membership support for volunteers, Girl Scouts, and families.
Why should I connect with my service unit?
The local volunteers on your service unit team provide an extra layer of support. When you connect with your service unit, you’ll meet fellow new leaders and experienced Girl Scout volunteers who will support and guide you. You’ll also be in-the-know about local program opportunities you can use to supplement your troop meetings and help your troop members meet other local Girl Scouts!
Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois has 33 Service Units who are excited to be working with you! If you have not been introduced to your Service Unit, contact your Recruitment Specailist or the Volunteer Development Team for more information.
There are many ways for troops, individual Girl Scouts, and their families to have fun, learn, and grow throughout the year. Each month you’ll receive your box with all the supplies you need to run your troop meetings. Additional fun awaits through our council- and community partner-led events. Check out our highlighted programs below!
Girl Scouts of Northern has programs for Daisies throughout our council all year long. Check out the upcoming events and programs on our Events Calendar.
We’re part of an exciting national pilot program! New Daisy Girl Scout troop leaders (brand new or experienced volunteers who are starting a new troop this year for Girl Scouts in grades K-1) will automatically be included in this program.
