Want to add more Girl Scouts or volunteers to your troop?  Read our tips below.

  1. Open spots for your troop in our online troop catalog: Our online troop catalog is how prospective members search for troops. You can update your troop information with this link
  2. Send invitations. If you have specific people you’d like to add to your troop and/or prefer not to be open to the public, Troop Leaders and Troop Admins can also invite people to their troop through MyGS. Just add their email, click send, and a non-shareable, temporary link will be sent to those individuals that will add them directly to your troop once they complete their registration.
  3. Spread the word with flyers: Use our resources below. We have flyers and social media graphics that you can use to spread the word about your troop and its open spots. Hand them out at school, sports, and other activities you participate in. You could also post a flyer at a community center or library.
  4. Get help from our staff:  Community Manager in your area can help you set up a recruitment event if you need to fill multiple spots. If you are unsure how to reach your Community Manager, you can email us at info@gsnorcal.org.
