We have somany options available and because
family needs have changed over the years,
some aremaking the choice to register their
daughter(s) and participate in the opportunities
that fit their lifestyle and availability best.
Q: Who “runs” a troop?
We havemore than 1,000 troops in our council each year that
are screened, selected and placed where they aremost needed. At
aminimum, even small troops must have two approved Girl Scout
volunteers. We sometimes do not have the needed volunteers to start
new troops at the beginning of the school year.
Q: When do volunteers join?
Although we recruit year-round, many volunteers join at the same time
girls do–in the fall. Time is needed to properly screen and place them in
the best volunteer role.
Q: When will my daughter’s troop beginmeeting?
We cannot guarantee your daughter will be placed in a troop
immediately. It will depend on whether we have existing troops already
established and/or troop volunteers ready to start a new troop.
Q: What if my daughter is on a wait list for a troop?
Girl Scouts not placed in a troop right away can still participate in Girl
Scout activities while new troops are being established.
