Adult Education and Enrichment

We are currently adding our volunteer education sessions to the website. Stay tuned!

Adult volunteers are essential to unlocking the keys of leadership for our girls in the Girl Scout Program. The Girl Scouts of the Chesapeake Bay is committed to fully preparing and supporting the women and men who volunteer their time to help girls become the best leaders they can be.

GS 101 and Volunteering for Girl Scouts Series and Events are online courses offered by GSUSA. GS 101 is a 45 minute, self–paced online orientation to Girl Scouting. This course’s intended audience is volunteers who are new to the organization, whether they work directly with girls or behind the scenes. While GS 101 applies to all volunteers, Volunteering for Girl Scout Series and Events is a streamlined version of GS 101 created specifically for those who commit to short–term volunteering (such as series and events). Topics covered include: About Girl Scouts, Ways to Participate, What Girl Scouts Do, the Mission, Promise, and Law, Girl Scout Cookies, Staying Safe, Ages and Stages:

What Girl Scouts Are Like, and What’s Next. Sessions can be found HERE. The site requires a password. Please contact Volunteer Services for the password.

Service Unit Basics

Service Unit Basics provides new adult volunteers the opportunity to meet with their service teams, as well as learn about forms, policies and procedures that support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Service Unit Basics is one of the first steps in education and is followed by further learning in Volunteer Essentials.
WHEN: Schedule with your service unit.
WHERE: Determined by your service unit.
NOTE: Resources you may want to bring: paper and pen and your questions about being a Girl Scout volunteer.



Journey Basics

The Journey Basics video will provide a general overview of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, the Journey books and the Girl’s Guide to Girl Scouting. It will also provide suggestions and insight on how to use these tools together. This training is mandatory for new volunteers. Watch the Journey Basics video today! Take the survey afterwards!



First Aid & CPR

Safety Wise defines a first–aider as an adult volunteer who has taken Girl Scout–approved first aid and CPR training that includes specific instructions for child CPR. The American Red Cross, National Safety Council, EMP America, and the American Heart Association offer such courses.

light bulbSTEM Education

We look forward to sharing STEM education online with our Girl Scout volunteers in the fall of 2013.
We plan on posting webinar courses on things such as; What is STEM? Why is STEM important?
GSCB STEM initiatives and effective STEM facilitation.



Share Your Knowledge... Become a Facilitator!

Facilitators are wonderful mentors who give our volunteers the tools to become successful and share the joy that comes from helping girls develop their leadership skills and be the successful leaders of tomorrow. Facilitating Adult Learning is a course focusing on how to deliver a learning session to a group of adult volunteers. Once you have completed the course, you will be required to apprentice for at least three sessions in the course you want to facilitate. If you have an interest in joining us in this venture and become part of this dynamic and committed core of facilitators, please contact GSCB’s Manager of Volunteerism at 302–456–7171 or 800–341–4007.
