Starting Your Junior Troop
If you are just starting with a Junior troop, there are many great resources for you. Your best resource is your fellow troop leaders. Be sure to attend service unit meetings in order to meet other troop leaders and get questions answered by your service unit team. Another good resource is the Volunteer Tool Kit (VTK) on the Girl Scouts of California's Central Coast website. You can plan out your year, track meetings, and email parents. Below you will find a nice way to start out your troop. Have a great Junior year!
