Volunteer Toolkit

The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a digital resource that supports troop leaders and co-leaders, making the process of running a troop easier and more efficient. Check out some of the toolkit’s top features below.

What is the Volunteer Toolkit (VTK)?

Make this Girl Scout year your best yet. With the Volunteer Toolkit, the new web app that helps you save time and plan for success, you can make every troop meeting awesome!

For Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, and Junior troops, the Volunteer Toolkit comes with pre-populated plans for everything—a full year of Girl Scouts right there on your device! Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador troops don’t get pre-populated meetings yet (coming soon), but you can still access great planning features.

Parents, now you can see what your girl’s troop is planning this year in an easy-to-use calendar view, stay in touch with your troop leader and find new ways to participate.

Troop Leaders, have your own idea for a meeting? Perfect. Everything in the Volunteer Toolkit is fully customizable. You can add your own activities and change their order with a quick drag-and-drop. You can also report on troop finances, access your girl and family roster, and track your girls’ achievements and attendance.

No more hunting for the right activity or book—you’ve got everything you need right on the app, accessible from your home computer or tablet or other mobile device.

Ready to get started? You can access the Volunteer Toolkit from the top of any page on our website by clicking "My GS" or "Sign In."
