Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey would like to welcome you to the great adventure of Girl Scouting!
Thanks to volunteers like you, generations of girls have learned to be leaders in their own lives and in the world. We know you’re busy and need to be efficient with your time. For that reason, the Quick‐Start Guide to Volunteer Essentials gives you the nitty‐gritty . . . what you need to know now, as you plan for your first meeting with girls. We encourage you to read through the tips as soon as you can, and then feel free to put down this handbook for the time‐being.
That’s because the rest of Volunteer Essentials is a reference for you to use only as needed. When you have a question, simply look up the topic in the Table of Contents, and you’ll find your answer. Think of Volunteer Essentials as your encyclopedia to Girl Scout volunteering. It’s there when you need it but, rest assured, there’s no need for you to read the entire book today. Ready to get started? Then read the Quick Start Guide, and you’ll be well on your way!
