The Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit (VTK) is a comprehensive digital
tool accessible on your computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Affectionately called the “Administrative Assistant” to the troop
leader, this addition to Girl Scouting will make it easier to help
girls put their plans into action!
Who can access the Volunteer Toolkit (VTK)?
All troop leaders and parents can access VTK beginning Aug.
1, 2017 (simply click on the MyGS tab on our website). Leaders
can use VTK for troop management and meeting planning. Parents can
view their child’s information and meeting plans only. If you need
assistance accessing VTK, please contact Customer Care.
Accessing the VTK
As an approved troop volunteer, you can visit our website and
click on the yellow MyGS tab where you will enter your log-in to gain
access. The VTK can be used from any computer or mobile electronic
device with internet capability. You can print meeting plans or
download them to your personal computer using remote internet access.
Using the VTK to Manage Your Troop
Junior-level leaders will have access to three full-year plans,
including one year of Girl Scout badges and a choice of two Girl Scout
Journeys for free. These pre-made plans provide everything you need to
get started. You can set your meeting calendar to include locations,
dates, and times. You can customize activities, delete ones that your
girls don’t want to do, and replace them with new ones. The VTK also
allows leaders to keep attendance and track the badges each girl
earns. Although the Cadette through Ambassador-level badge and Journey
program resources are not currently loaded in the VTK, girls and their
advisors can use the “Create Your Own Year Plan” function to plan
meetings. Older girl badge and Journey program resources will be
available soon. Stay tuned for details.
Using the VTK to communicate with troop families
Since it's connected to the GSGLA member registration system
(Member Community), the VTK allows all leaders to manage troop
contacts and communicate with families. You can easily generate
customized emails that tell families what to expect at each meeting.
