Leader Training Calendar--Check your Statewide Program Training Guide for schedules and locations

The Girl Scout Council of Hawaii offers many training opportunities for new and experienced Leaders and other Girl Scout adult volunteers. The training sessions listed in this calendar have been planned to meet your needs and are conducted by volunteer trainers. We have scheduled a variety of topics with sessions held mornings, afternoons, and weekends.

Steps to Take...

The steps in training to become an effective Leader are:

   1. Go through Troop Leadership Training Module 1: Girl Scout Leader Orientation and Troop Reference Manual with your Service Unit Manager or Age-Level Consultant. This module focuses on the basic information Leaders "need to know" (i.e. safety, procedures, and paperwork, etc.)

   2. Meet with your troop a few times (2 to 4 meetings are recommended).

   3. Attend a Module 2: The Girl Scout Program--Hawaii Council training session (registration information). This module will cover the general information for all age levels for leaders. (What to bring) Prerequisite: Module 1.

   4. Attend a Module 3: Age-Level Information training session (registration information), which provides "how to" information on working with girls at either the Daisy, Brownie, Junior, or Cadette/Senior Girl Scout age levels. An experienced Leader who is new to an age level should attend the Module 3 training session for that age level. (What to bring) Prerequisite: Module 1.

   5. Attend Community First Aid/CPR Training (registration information and what to bring) or assure that a registered adult in your troop is certified.

   6. Attend a Leader's Ho'olaulea/Leader's Enrichment Opportunities (crafts, songfest, outdoor skills, Hawaiiana, age-level roundtables, etc.)

To prepare yourself to take the girls outdoors:

   7. Attend a Module 4: 8-Basic Outdoor Skills training session (registration) (or be certified as having the appropriate skills by the Service Unit Manager or designee). (What to bring) The 8-Basic Outdoor Skills is a prerequisite for Module 5: Troop Camp Training.

   8. Take the troop on a day outing or cookout.

   9. Attend the Module 5: Troop Camp Training (TCT) (registration information) Covers basic camping skills and safety so you can take your girls camping. The cost is $14.00 for one night. (What to bring) Prerequisite: Module 4--8-Basic Outdoor Skills is a prerequisite for Troop Camp Training. (Note: Cost may differ on various islands)
