Volunteer Resource Center

Come visit the Volunteer Resource Center!

The Volunteer Resource Center (VRC) is the place that will help guide you, the Girl Scout Volunteer, along your Girl Scout journey. Together, we’ll plan amazing troop meetings that will show girls that they can have fun and do amazing things that change the world, all at the same time.

The VRC has a great library of resources including ideas for ceremonies, games, SWAPs, and crafts, and is filled with tons of materials for Girl Scout volunteers to borrow for troop meetings. Some of our materials include a variety of Leaf, Badge, and Journey kits, Outdoor Resource Boxes, flags and ceremonial items, and so much more.
