The 2015-2016 Girl Scout Year for the North Penn Service Unit is about to begin! Here are some notes to get you started:
1. If you are not planning on being a leader this year and are still receiving emails, etc, please contact Monica immediately. If you are a new leader and are not receiving information, please email Monica so that she can add you to the roster. If your Troop has undergone any changes, major or minor, please let Monica know so that she can update the roster and add/delete information.
2. Please join the North Penn Girl Scout Leaders Facebook Group. This is the group for leaders (not parents) to discuss information, share ideas, etc. There is also a public FB group, North Penn Girl Scouts; this is the group you can join and suggest your parents join as well. (GSEP also has a FB page.)
3. Our first leader meeting with be at Trinity, on September 3rd. More information will follow as it becomes available.
4. Anyone who is a leader, assistant leader or co-leader (and each troop must have two) must have the three basic trainings completed within three months of starting. You must do GS 101 and Volunteer Essentials, which can be done online and then an age level. You only have to do ONE age level. You do not have to update each time you move up to a new level. The only time I would recommend updating is when you start leading an older girl troop, as there is SO much more to know that doesn't apply to the younger levels. Indoor overnight must be done before taking any overnight trip, whether to a museum or your living room floor. Outdoor overnight is for any outdoor experience, and indoor overnight is a pre-req. Fall trainings have all been posted. For more information, please contact Alice.
