Invite a Friend - Girl Scouts - 2015

By Kat High, Recruitment Director

Two heroes are better than one! This November, invite a friend to start a new Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop, and everyone wins! You get $50 to spend at Girl Scouts’ official online store, and your friend gets a fun, free Volunteer Resource Pack to help them get started. Plus girls get another amazing role model and hero—so much YES!

It can be as simple as bringing your friends together to talk about the fun you’re having with Girl Scouts! Over coffee, dessert, or even a girls’ night out!

Share with them that girls are happier, more confident, make friends, and gain new skills and experiences in Girl Scouts. Let them know that as a Girl Scout volunteer, they will help girls become the leaders they are meant to be.  There are so many ways they can make a difference volunteering with Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines.

Plus, when you double the friends, you double your prize…
$100 for you and a Volunteer Resource Pack for each friend—awesome!

Once your friend joins Girl Scouts as a troop leader, completes the volunteer application, and starts a new Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, or Junior troop, head on over to to claim your prize.

When you invite the inspiring people you know to join the fun of leading girls, it’s a WIN-WIN! Ready. Set. Go Invite-a-Friend today!

VTK Updates!

By Christin Murphy, Adult Learning Director

Something we can all agree on these days is that life is just plain BUSY!  Busy is the new state of normal for many of our lives.  ‘Busy’ has become the new ‘fine.’ Making one thing in your life simpler or easier to understand, can reduce stress and create space for yourself, for fun, for rest.

I know there are times when I find myself asking, “What one thing can I do this week to simplify my life?”   And thanks to these great new features you are guaranteed to love, the Girl Scout Volunteer Toolkit (one of our best resources) will help you simply not just this week, but each week of your Girl Scout year.

Troop Communication Tools

The “My Troop” tab in the Volunteer Toolkit is now up and running!  This new feature allows you to view contact information and communicate directly with your troop members individually or as a group.  This tab gives you access to members’ email, phone number, address, birthdays and more.  Connecting with your Girl Scout families has never been easier.

Automatic Meeting Reminders

Sending out meeting reminders and event information is now a cinch!  You will notice the new meeting reminder email feature on each meeting plan.  Simply click on a link and a reminder email is automatically created with information about the location, date, time and an overview of the meeting content.  This awesome new feature also allows you to add the coordinating meeting aids or any of our online forms as attachments, cutting down on the need for printing and saving you time.

Troop Activity Tracking

This new feature, which is located on each meeting plan, allows you to record meeting attendance.  When clicking on the link you will see a list of all your troop members.  With this convenient new feature, you can take attendance on your phone instead of having to keep paper records, or even worse try to remember days or weeks later who was there for a particular meeting.  The best part – all meeting attendance and earned awards are tracked by girl under the “My Troop” tab.  How cool is that?

At Girl Scouts – NC Coastal Pines, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to manage the logistics so you can focus on the girls and having fun.  Log in today to MY GS today to plan and organize your Girl Scout year with ease – it’s just that simple. Login into the VTK and experience this awesome new features yourself!
