How to be a Girl Scout Troop Volunteer

 

Volunteering is a great way to provide girls in your community with the Girl Scout experience - a sisterhood that last forever!

 

To support your child’s troop follow these steps:
  1. Register your family and your daughter through EBiz under www.gshnj.org. Girls are $40 and family members are $25 each.

     

  2. Complete the volunteer application/background online form through the www.gshnj.org page.

     

  3. Forward the Cranford Service Unit Registrar (Registrar@CranfordGirlScouts.com) the GSHNJ email confirmations for your family so that they may be assigned to the Cranford Service Unit (48).

All new Leaders should complete GS 101, BLT1, BLT2 and Level Training. Each time a Leader or Advisor rises with their level they should attend a new Level Training. For example, if you are a Brownie Leader rising to Juniors, you should now attend a Junior Level Training.
