The Volunteer-In-Training Award is for Girl Scout Seniors and Ambassadors who would like to mentor a Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior or Cadette group outside of the camp experience. A Volunteer-In-Training project needs to span a three to six month period.

To earn the Volunteer-In-Training a girl:

1. Finds an adult volunteer mentor who is currently the volunteer for a group of girls at the level she would like to work with. This volunteer will help her through her training and internship, and she'll help the volunteer with her group of girls for a three to six month period.

2. Completes a council-designed Volunteer-In-Training leadership course.

3. Creates and implements a thoughtful journey project that lasts over four or more sessions. Volunteer-In-Training might also help younger girls with a Take Action project. The Volunteer-In-Training is responsible for designing, planning and evaluating the activities. If a girl is passionate about a topic such as art or technology, she could design activities around that topic.

This leadership course is designed to be completed with the support of a troop/group volunteer from Girl Scouts of Southeastern Michigan.
