Tell Me How/Troop Enrichment Leadership Series
Want to get more parents involved? Or need some suggestions about troop finances? Interested in ceremonies?
Girl Scouts of Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois offers several trainings to enhance your troop’s experience.
Our offerings include:
The best way to engage parents from the very beginning of your troop year is to hold a parent meeting. You can share all the information they will need to be a part of the troop. It is also a great way to recruit additional help for your troop. This informative video will give you the how to’s of holding a successful parent meeting.
There is also a mini course that will help you throughout the year when parental help is needed. This course has resources as well as suggestions on how to engage the parents in your troop. Conflict management is also included for those times when parents and leaders don’t see eye-to-eye.
Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting and Beyond
This course is a guide to the new Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting and incorporating the new badges and activities with the existing Journeys.
