Rallyhood is an all-in-one platform for Girl Scout communication and collaboration, combining many of the tools Girl Scout service units and troop leaders use to communicate with other volunteers and families; manage event promotion, registration, and payment; share photos; post, respond, and collaborate with other volunteers and parents and more.

What is this for? How will it help my service unit or troop?

The purpose of Rallyhood is to make the day-to-day responsibilities of volunteers in leadership roles easier. The Rallyhood platform combines the functionality of an assortment of online "open source" and social media applications into one easy-to-use location. Service units and troops can customize their sites with their own photos and information, creating their own space for volunteers and parents to communicate.

Rallyhood Frequently Asked Questions

Why did GSNI choose Rallyhood?

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois is launching Rallyhood this year to provide an additional level of support to service units and troops at a time when staying connected online is more important than ever. Rallyhood has been working with Girl Scout councils for 5+ years—they’re familiar with the Girl Scout movement and the needs of its volunteers. Rallyhood has created an ecosystem customized to our council and volunteer groups, and will continue to work with council staff to improve how the system works for our volunteers.

How much does it cost?

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois covers the cost of using Rallyhood. The only cost associated would be processing fees for Stripe if you choose to use the payment feature for events or activities.

How does a Rallyhood community work?

There are a number of council-level community hubs categorized by types of volunteer roles and activities where council staff will post content for volunteer groups or Girl Scout families. In addition to these council-level Rallyhood communities, each service unit may have its own community hub with additional rallies (sub-groups) within it, such as rallies for troop leaders, troop cookie managers, families, event coordinators, day camp/encampment volunteer committees, and others that are specific to that service unit. Within these community hubs and rallies, a service unit or troop can promote events, post information, start conversations, take registration and payment for activities, create calendars, etc. There is no limit to the number of rallies allowed to be created within a community hub, and these can be created by anyone who is an admin on the account.

How do I start a Rallyhood community for my service unit?

Girl Scouts of Northern Illinois has already created a Rallyhood community hub for each service unit. Service unit managers will receive an email invitation to schedule one on one training, attend a getting started webinar or access the GSLearn training. Service Units may delegate this to another volunteer on their service unit or choose to opt out. It’s important to know, Troops may proceed using Rallyhood even if the Service Unit chooses not to adopt it.

Who can see my Rallyhood community hub and rallies?

Community hubs and rallies can be set to public or private. If set to public, anyone could find that hub or rally in a search, join it, and access content. If set to private, an individual would need to be invited in order to access the hub or rally. This way you can control who is a member of individual rallies, such as inviting all troop cookie managers within your service unit to a rally specific to them.

I am already using other platforms to store and share files, posts, calendars, and photos. How do I move them to Rallyhood.

There is not an automatic way to move content from other platforms to Rallyhood, since they are competing companies. You will need to move content manually to Rallyhood by downloading from your existing platform(s) and uploading to Rallyhood. The good news—it might be a good time to clean up and reorganize your photos and files!
