Self-study Courses 

LaptopGSOFCT Independent Learning Courses

Basic Leader Training and Out and About are offered as self-study. Volunteers who cannot attend a regularly scheduled class can complete their training with this option.

We encourage interactive courses that allow time for sharing and working together. Self-studies may meet the time-frame for volunteers however the learning opportunities provided through collaborative participation are missing. We highly suggest volunteers take courses in a classroom setting.

There’s a good chance you’ve already logged on to to watch Girl Scouting 101 or Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events, our self-paced, online orientations to Girl Scouting. Those online sessions and Volunteer Essentials are designed to give you all of the information you need to start working with girls. They’re always available; think of them as references you can use whenever you need them.

For volunteers interested in learning more about taking girls outside, check out Venture Out, an introduction to outdoor training. Through this interactive session, you can see different scenarios your girls might enjoy. Make sure to click on the owl – she has additional information to share with you!
