Girl Scouts 101:
To assist you with your troops, a Nuts and Bolts of different grade level resources is available below. This will emphasize how to work with girls in the different grade levels and provide information on behavior and troop management. The Nuts and Bolts packets are also in a format that can be used by leaders as individual study trainings. Leaders can review the materials and send in the test and evaluation at the end of the packet to receive 'credit' for Nuts and Bolts. Paperwork can be submitted via postal mail, please send to:

What training(s) do I need?
The trainings needed will depend on the adult position within the troop and the troop activities planned. Please consult the Training section of GSEWNI policies for information on specific trainings. If you need further clarification please ask the Adult Education Department.
I can't attend the scheduled training
is there another way to get my training completed?
Please contact the Adult Education Department immediately. We will create a wish list for trainings. This wish list will allow us to notify you if a new training is scheduled or to schedule one when enough interest is presented.
I have taken some trainings through work,
can I get Girl Scout credit for those?
Trainings from outside organizations may qualify for Girl Scout requirements. The Director of Adult Education needs to approve trainings from outside organizations. Please forward proof of training, length of training, training description, and trainer contact information to the Adult Education Department.
Do I need to have First Aid and CPR training?
A registered Girl Scout Adult with current First Aid and CPR training must be present for all troop functions. Troop functions include, but are not limited to: troop meetings, troop outings, sleepovers, events, camping, and cookie sale activities. This person does not need to be the primary troop leader.
I cannot afford the training I need, how do I get assistance?
There are three ways to receive assistance for training fees.
