Volunteer Toolkit

The Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is your official source for delivering easy, fun troop meetings year-round.

This fully customizable, digital planning tool is accessible on any computer, tablet, or other mobile device and provides you with Girl Scout program content, award requirements, and other resources.

Through the VTK, troop leaders can:

  • Plan the troop's calendar year.
  • View the troop roster and email families with one click.
  • View badges, Journeys, and awards for all program levels including prepopulated tracks for younger and older multi-level troop groups (K–5 and 6–12).
  • Explore meeting plans that show a breakdown of every meeting, including a list of materials needed and editable time allotments for each activity within a meeting.
  • Record girls' attendance at meetings and their badge and Journey achievements.
  • Add council or custom troop events to the troop's calendar.
  • Enter the troop's finances (depending on the council's process).
  • Easily locate resources both national and local council resources, such as Safety Activity Checkpoints.

The VTK is for caregivers and administrative volunteers, too!

  • Caregivers of Girl Scouts in a troop can see troop financial reports, download their attendance and achievement records, and stay up-to-date on the great things the troop is doing throughout the year.
  • Individually registered Girl Scouts and their caregivers can access badges, Journeys, and awards to take charge of their experience individually.
  • Administrative volunteers can watch a VTK demo to see all available troop/family programming—as well as provide support and training to their volunteers.
