Whether you’re a new volunteer or you’ve been with us a while, we’ve got you covered! We offer gsLearn, Girl Scouts’ official online and on-demand training platform, scheduled, interactive webinars and trainings; and in-person training opportunities that empower our volunteers with the skills to deliver the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. 


Volunteer Leadership Development Events

Nothing beats our leadership development events to learn valuable skills to enhance and enrich your leadership experience, network with other volunteers for support and of course, make new friends.


Administrative Team Conference

Every August, our new and returning administrative team members are invited to join us at the annual Administrative Team Conference. During this conference, service unit team members kick off the new program year with updates and pertinent information to their volunteer role/s. Volunteers considering joining their area service unit team are encouraged and welcome to attend.

Our next Administrative Team Conference is set for Saturday, August 19, 2023 to be held at our very own Camp Mary Atkinson. Please save the date and look for registration this summer! If you have questions regarding this event, please contact Carolyn Pridgen at
