Volunteer Essentials 2014-15
Our 14-15 issue of Volunteer Essentials is ready to help you start a new year of Girl Scouting! This publication, updated yearly, includes all the basics you need -- including forms and ideas. If you have a question, Volunteer Essentials is your primary resource.
This year, we designed Volunteer Essentials so you can easily download a copy to your computer, tablet or smart phone. Just click on the image below to expand and select "Download PDF." You can also view it at any time from this page without downloading.
