Events and series are planned and presented by GSSEM, adult volunteers, or troops. They aren't restricted to service units or communities, and Girl Scouts within the council region may attend. The goal is to bring troops and Juliettes of all Girl Scout levels together to learn, discover new interests and talents, and have fun.
GSSEM offers four types of events: troop, service unit, community, or council. Girl events are stand-alone and conducted outside of regular troop meetings; they're typically held for a single day, occasionally overnight, or over a weekend.
Series offerings are group programs where the same girls participate in multiple sessions, which can be regularly scheduled (e.g., every other week, monthly, etc.).
GSSEM provides helpful resources for troops and individuals who are planning events. Volunteer Community Event Organizers and Troop Support Specialists can help guide troops and individuals planning Service Unit and Community events through the process of getting their events approved and included on the event list.
An excellent place to start is the Intent to Event form. This resource can be used to guide any troop or individual in the planning of a service unit or community event.
