New Leader Orientation

New Leader Orientation is required for Troop Co-leaders.

Welcome to Girl Scouts of Virginia Skyline Council New Leader Orientation, and thank you so much for your interest in leading a Girl Scout Troop!  We are Girl Scouts –the preeminent leadership development organization for girls.

In this short 15 minute orientation, we will tell you about the Girl Scout experience, as well as all that you and your Troop Co-Leader(s) need to know to plan and hold your first troop meeting and open your Troop bank account. Links to all of the resources we discuss in this session are available in your Welcome email. 


What’s Next?

After you’ve completed your New Leader Orientation, you are permitted to host your first Troop Meeting and open your Troop bank account. You can expect to be contacted by council staff to help you through your first year!

GS102 Finance Training is required by both you and your Troop Co-Leader within 30 days of opening the bank account.  You can find a link to this training in your welcome email.
