Trainings and Awards



Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore is committed to upholding the policy of GSUSA that all volunteers are trained based on the role they serve with GSMISTS. We have many roles available for those wanting to give back to Girl Scouts. 

Steps to becoming a Troop Leader:

1. Become a registered member

2. Complete Troop Management Training on gsLearn

Directions on how to access gsLearn have been emailed to active volunteers. If you are a new volunteer, information on how to access gsLearn can be found in your New Leader Letter. If you have any questions, please contact Andrea Hornby at ahornby@gsmists.org.


Volunteer Awards

Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore is only as strong as its volunteers, and ours are exceptional. Volunteers who go above and beyond in their role as a Girl Scout volunteer should be recognized and appreciated. Formal recognition is given out each year at annual events.
