Program Aide Training

Program Aide training provides the tools, knowledge and skills to work with younger girls and to assist at program events, day camps and troop meetings.

We have a new Program Aide training program developed from revision recommendations from our national organization, Girl Scouts of USA and our Program Aide volunteer committee.  If you are interested in becoming a Program Aide trainer or are a Program Aide trainer, please email for our new Program Aide training.
