Please note: Cadettes can have a registered caregiver or troop leader/volunteer help them access the training. Cadettes 13 years of age or older with their own email address can request access to the training in gsLearn here.
We also have a team of facilitators to hold local in-person workshops. Complete this form to request a two-hour, in-person workshop.
