Troop Management

The necessary communications of running a troop.

Troop leaders navigate these five responsibilities, partnering with all troop volunteers to: 

  • Stay in touch with council staff and service area volunteers
  • Prepare for girl safety
  • Manage troop finances
  • Communicate with parents/caregivers
  • Guide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience (GSLE)

In this section, find the council-specific forms, directions, advice, and survey links to help you accomplish the annual business pieces of running the troop. We know you want to spend most of your volunteer time with the girls, having fun! After all, the most important thing you’ll do as a volunteer is simply show the girls you care about them.
