Girl Scouting 101 - Online

Girl Scouting 101 is a self-paced online orientation to Girl Scouting produced by GSUSA. It is designed to be a resource that can be bookmarked or added to “Favorites” so that you will be able to go back and review it again and again.



Girl Scouting 101 is approximately 45 minutes in length and is broken down into eight parts:
» About Girl Scouts (the basics)
» Ways to Participate (the flexible options – troop, camp, series, event, virtual, and
    travel pathways, plus direct and indirect volunteering)
» What Girl Scouts Do (Girl Scout Leadership Experience, Journeys, Girl’s Guides,
    Bronze/Silver/Gold Awards)
» Mission, Promise, Law
» Girl Scout Cookies
» Staying Safe (the Girl Scout Safety Standards)
» Ages and Stages: What Girl Scouts Are Like (girl development for each grade level)
» What’s Next (how to move forward with their local councils; how they are supported)


Girl Scouting 101 replaces the Girl Scout Basics and Grade Level courses previously offered.


New leaders/assistant leaders and those who are moving to a new level are required to take Girl Scouting 101.


New Leader Orientation (NLO), an in person session facilitated by the service unit manager or designee or GSNNJ staff is required for new leaders/assistant leaders and is a prerequisite to Girl Scouting 101. For questions about NLO, please contact the Membership and Community Development Director/Manager for your service unit (see “About Us” at
