Volunteer Training

gsLearn is an online training platform for active volunteers! Access courses on-the-go, track your progress, and more by signing into your MY GS account and clicking on the gsLearn logo.

If you are not able to access gsLearn after logging into MyGS, please contact Customer Care at for assistance.

Below are some of the Learning Paths and Courses you may find on gsLearn:

Co-Leader Certification (CLC) Program Learning Path: The CLC Program is required for all new co-leaders and is a welcome refresh for returning leaders! The Co-Leader Certification Program will empower you to become the confident leader of girls you signed up to be. The modules will provide you with knowledge and skills necessary for the troop year ahead—and beyond!

Juliette Mentor Guide: A Girl Scout Juliette is a girl who participates in the Girl Scout program on her own, with your guidance. Since she is not affiliated with a troop, she needs a mentor who supports her as she explores her Girl Scout experience. The Mentor Guide is recommended for all Juliette mentors.

Enrichment courses: Want to learn how to implement troop government with your girls? How about the important steps to deescalating conflict with other volunteers? Have you ever wanted to explore the tried and true Girl Scout traditional songs, ceremonies, crafts, and special days? Enrichment trainings on these subjects (and more!) are available in a variety of formats to fit your needs.
