You can use what we’ve already done.

You’ll make a plan. And then it will change. That’s so ok. Volunteers make space for girls to gather and grow together. It’s fun to be together! You’re making it happen!

How to build a Year Plan

Looking for advice on what to include in your Girl Scout year? In an age-appropriate way, include the girls in the decision making.

  • Check out these GSUSA Troop Year Plan suggestions for every program grade level.
  • Choose a pre-assembled Year Plan inside the Volunteer Toolkit.
  • Earn Super Troop status and a fun patch by including 9 simple activities in one year.
  • Choose one badge and a complementary field trip from each of the four program pillars of Outdoors, STEM, Entrepreneurship, and Life Skills.
  • Select one Journey to earn and add in the complementary badges and suggested field trips.

Once volunteers and girls have decided what to include in the year, use these resources to assemble each meeting agenda. Pull together the pieces you like best.

  • The Volunteer Toolkit and the badge pamphlets are the standard planning tools.
  • Find “guest speaker” recordings in the Activity Zone.
  • Use a Council Meeting Guide for virtual or in-person meetings.
  • Schedule a field trip in the Council Field Trips and Travel pages.
