What is Leadership I Orientation?

Leadership I Orientation is a training class recommended for all new leaders and assistant leaders after they have completed the GSSGC Leadership I online instruction. Leadership I Orientation will help orient new leaders to the policies and practices not only of our council, but GSUSA and the local service area. Materials introduced are: Safety-Wise; Policies, Standards and Procedures; Policies and Procedures for Operational Personnel; the Basic Blue Book of Documents; registrations forms and all other mandatory, recommended or useful forms. Some badge-book and journey information will also be discussed and there is a question and answer opportunity.

Where can I access Leadership I online?

You may access Leadership I online at: Please take all chapter quizzes and choose ‘submit’ at the end of the training. Please print out and bring the copy of the final page to the orientation.

Is there any other training I need?

Yes, there are two more trainings required that will equip a new leader with the essentials to mentor a successful Girl Scout troop. The names of these trainings are: Leadership II (new name coming shortly) and Leadership Essentials. Leadership II will be offered through our council, and Leadership Essentials will be offered through your service area. New leaders have 6 months from taking LI to take L II and Leadership Essentials. Ongoing training for volunteers, new or experienced, is always available at the mandatory monthly service area meetings for each service area. Your LI facilitator should have dates, time and location information for you.

When can I start my troop?

Volunteers must first be cleared through GSSGC volunteer services; then they must take Leadership I Online & LI Orientation. Volunteers will be guided through the next steps from the facilitator. Please refer to the outline below:
1. Prospective volunteer submits volunteer application and approval for criminal history background check form to our central service center in Redlands.
2. Once cleared by our volunteer services department, prospective volunteers take Leadership I online and attend Leadership I orientation.
3. Once a prospective volunteer is matched with another cleared and trained volunteer, they are given a list of names of girls and their parents to invite to a parent meeting.
4. New leaders hold a parent meeting, which includes completion of forms and prospective calendar. If possible, an existing volunteer, membership development coordinator or volunteer specialist will attend this initial meeting.
5. New leaders will sign up for Leadership II and Leadership Essentials training as soon as it is offered.
6. After collecting registration paperwork from parents, the new leaders will be referred to their service area registrar and receive their troop number.
7. After a troop receives their number, they will be referred to the service area finance coordinator to open a bank account.
8. The troop is ready to meet as a troop.
