General Leader Info

Welcome Edina Girl Scout Leaders!

Thank you for volunteering to lead your new troop this year. You will never regret the time that you spend with your Girl Scout on this endeavor! As you know, knowledgeable volunteers are essential to provide girls with fun and safe experiences that develop leadership. The more you know upfront, the easier it will be to lead your troop. The biggest piece of advice.... take a deep breath - these girls have never been in Girl Scouts before, they are not coming in with expectations. Girl Scouts for them can be as small or as big as you make it.
