Leader Zone

Welcome to the Leader Zone!

First, the Service Unit team would like to thank you for stepping up to be a leader of your daughter’s troop. Without you, we could not have a Service Unit.

In this section of the website, you will find contact information for the Service Unit Team, our membership specialist at Girl Scouts of Minnesota and Wisconsin River Valleys, copies of flyers on upcoming events and some of the resources we have created over the years.

If you have anything you would like to see added, please ship it to Dan Pothier.

New leaders are required to take three levels of training:
1) GSUSA Orientation on the Girl Scout website. Please put Registration@girlscoutsrv.org in the “learning log” email address.
2) Fast Start Training. Scheduled at the Service Unit level.
3) Leadership Essentials.  Requied within 2-4 months of becoming a leader. This is a class either scheduled through the Girl Scouts Council or can be done as a self-study online at http://www.girlscoutsrv.org/volunteer/new_volunteers.html

There is further training available through the Girl Scout Council depending on your planned activitis – Girls Sleep In, Girls Cook In, Girls Sleep Out, Girls Cook Out. Please consult the Council’s training schedule for what is available.

Again, we thank you for your service
