Required Co-Leader Trainings

As a Girl Scout troop co-leader, you’re required to complete five trainings (within your first 30 days of becoming a leader) designed to prepare you to lead and share the Girl Scout Leadership Experience with your girls.

The first four classes are on-line through GSLearn, our online learning management system, which is found on the same login page as MyGS. All of our online trainings can be done at your own pace, as you are able to start, stop and start again picking up right where you left off! How amazing is that? Once on GSLearn, the first 4 trainings should immediately be displayed on your dashboard or you can also find them in the course library. If you have any trouble accessing GSLearn, please contact our Help Desk
