This section is the foundation for the rest of the optional training components. It is also the only piece that we expect every Program Aide to have an understanding of. The basic training includes: An introduction to leading a group, songs & games, Girl Scouts safety, the basics for creating a program, & a few other key leadership skills. These are the essential skills for our youth to lead & act as role models in the Girl Scouting community.
