How parents and guardians can help
Welcome to the Girl Scout family!
Girls have many choices in today's world and since your daughter has chosen Girl Scouts, we want her experience to be the best it can be. We have found that parents, who are well informed about our organization and share their daughters’ experience, help to make that happen. Here’s what you can do:
Take an active role - As a Girl Scout parent, you will want to take an active role in your daughter’s Girl Scout experience. You can help with refreshments, leading activities, providing transportation, making phone calls or assisting with troop meetings. Ask your daughter’s leaders how you can best assist the troop!
Support activities - Along with troop activities, your active role can include supporting product sales. As a parent you can show your support for your daughter and the council by learning about the cookies, nuts or magazine sales and following all guidelines and procedures.
Respect leader’s time - Girl Scouts relies on the efforts of dedicated volunteers. However, your daughter’s troop leader cannot be responsible for girls beyond the time of the actual Girl Scout activity. Please respect the leader’s time by having a responsible person drop your daughter off at the appropriate time and pick her up immediately after the activity.
