Girl Scout troops need to be large enough to provide a cooperative learning environment, but small enough to allow development of individual youth. That’s why all new troops are set to welcome 12 girls, GSUSA’s research-backed recommended troop size.
When a new member selects to join your troop, and membership registration is completed, the registered troop leader(s) or Troop Admin(s) will receive an email with the new girl's name and parent/guardian contact information. When all available youth spaces have been filled your troop will be removed from the Troop Catalog. Available volunteer roles will always display on the Volunteer Catalog.
All volunteer roles require the completion and approval of a Criminal Background Check with Motor Vehicle Record. Once a volunteer role is selected and registration is complete, a personal invitation will be sent to each member from our vendor Sterling Volunteers. The email will come directly from TheAdvocates@SterlingVolunteers.com with the subject “Invitation From Girl Scouts of Northern California.” Once a background check has been reviewed and approved by GSNorCal, the role will become active.
Our staff will contact you to answer questions and offer assistance, but if you have questions regarding the status of your form please contact our Community Specialists at email@example.com or 800-447-4475 ext. 2093
