Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains (GSGWM) Volunteer Toolkit

Helpful Volunteer Toolkit Update

The Volunteer Toolkit recently received a helpful update. Upon login to the VTK, you will now see a new “VTK Help Menu” button (on the right). This new button provides additional online support options within the VTK, including step-by-step instructions for completing a particular action, and links to video tutorials. Users will also see circular green information icons (Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains (GSGWM) VTK) throughout the VTK, that when selected, will either trigger that step in the walk-through, or present a pop-up window with more information about that section of the VTK.

These updates are a great addition for anyone who is still learning the VTK. Contact Troop Support with questions or for more information.

We provide all the materials, a detailed program outline, handle registrations, and make sure you have the support needed to run a successful program. We want to hear from you – let us know about the programs that you and your girls want to see offered, such as CSI or STEAM activities that focus on environmental science and art. To lead a program or for more information, please contact Customer Care.

The 2017 year was fantastic for Girl Scouts of the Green and White Mountains. We want to thank our Girl Scout community for helping us meet our goal to raise $100,000 to earn the first half of the Unleashing Her Potential campaign challenge of $25,000! We look forward to meeting the second half of the challenge this year to earn the full $50,000. We need to raise another $100,000 by September 30, 2018. It’s never too late to be counted! Help us spread the word to support the Unleashing Her Potential Campaign.
