How do I sign up for training?
There are two ways to sign up for training; the first is to fill out a Learning Opportunity registration form, found in the forms section of the VERB or www.gsnim.org That can be mailed, faxed, or dropped off to any service center. The other way is to sign up online. Go to the calendar of events, choose the session you wish to take, click on it and then go to the adult learning registration form.
Where can I get a copy of the Volunteer Application?
It is available in the Forms section of the VERB or on the Website in the Forms section. One can also be requested at any service center or from your CDM.
Why do I have to take so many trainings? I have a busy life- can more be online?
We take pride in providing our volunteers with the knowledge and skills needed to provide the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to girls. In some areas, Red Cross First Aid/CPR are available on line. That leaves the Grade Level Basics, Trip Planning Basics and Outdoor Basics training that need to be completed as a face to face training. These learning opportunities do not need to be completed all at once. By attending group trainings you have a chance to meet other volunteers both new and experienced. It is a great opportunity to network with others and to share tried and true activities.
What does it take to be a leader?
Do you want to make a difference in the lives of girls? Then you are headed in the right direction! Just contact one of our local service centers or the Learning and Leadership Center in Fort Wayne and tell the person answering the phone you want to be a leader. They’ll connect you to a staff person from our Membership Team who will send you a volunteer application to complete and return to us. You are asked to go through an interview and a reference and background check before you can be recommended for approval.
