Join us at the Monthly volunteer meetings
Connect with other Volunteers and Leaders
Between Girl Scout meetings and all of your kids’ other activities (plus, oh yea, family time), attending a monthly Girl Scout service unit meeting may seem out of the question. But remember, being a troop leader isn’t a solo activity, and as you continue to grow with Girl Scouts, these service unit meetings will become even more valuable! Led by local volunteers, service units create a tight-knit sense of community within North Beaverton, providing personal support, local resources, inspiration, and answers that every Girl Scout volunteer should take advantage of.
Volunteer meetings for the 2018-19 school year are on the SECOND Thursday of each month, from 7pm-8:30pm. There are only 10 meetings a year, so please have a troop leader, co-leader or a parent attend as many as possible.

Volunteer toolkit training and NOI tutorial
This week was full of information including training on the volunteer toolkit (adding and removing troop members/girls, etc) and a tutorial on how to fill out the newly designed Notice of Intent to Travel (NOI) form. We also had Troop 40287 tell us about Parents Night Out, an event they’re putting on to raise money for their senior year trip, where you can drop your child(ren) off for some much deserved time to yourself. This event is on Dec. 7th form 6-9pm. More information on their flyer here >

Introducing Girl Scout Bucks
This week we made special DIY bags to hold our GS Bucks. What are GS Bucks? These are handed out at meetings and events for any of the following reasons and behaviors:
Showing up to meetings
Being a part of the flag ceremony
What can you do with GS Bucks? At the end of the year we will have a silent auction with all kinds of gift baskets, certificates, and other items that have been donated to us. You will have the chance to buy these.
