Circle of Creativity events are opportunities to keep up your momentum as a volunteer through new ideas & inspire other volunteers in your region. At these unique events, you’ll connect with your fellow Girl Scout leaders, hear from GSGI staff, enjoy a snack, and share best practices with each other. There will be two rounds of break-out session choices, offering a variety of topics.

Come early to network with volunteers & staff or ask your Volunteer Toolkit questions between 5:45-6:30 pm.

Break-Out Session Round #1 (Please choose 1)

In the Loop with Older Girls
Speak with our future leaders during this session. This panel offers an opportunity to talk to girls in grades 6-12, and get firsthand input on what they like to do, as well as what works and doesn’t work for older girls. 

Getting to Zero – Managing Your Cookie Inventory
Come join us as we talk about what’s new with cookies, a sneak preview of our new online management system, Smart Cookies, and tips & tricks on how to manage your cookie inventory.

STEM Out with New Journeys
Here, you will catch a glimpse of these new STEM & Outdoor Journeys for Daisy, Brownie, Junior, and Multilevel troops. We’ll share how they’re available for you, test out an activity, and talk about how we can make these meetings more unique for your girls.

Break-Out Session Round #2 (Please choose 1)

The 5 W’s of Service Unit Programs
Who is the program for? Who implements the program? What program do we even do? When are we going to do this? Where can we even do a program? And why are we doing Service Unit programs? Have all these questions answered by attending SU Programs at Circle of Creativity!

Songs & Games on a Shoestring
Low on funds, starting a new troop, or just looking to save money? In this session, you’ll learn how to use two normal shoestrings to lead fun & engaging team-building activities where girls will build trust, learn planning, develop problem solving, understand roles & responsibilities, and get to know each other better.

Journey in a Day: How…Seriously?!
Work with some basic lesson planning and what main touch points you need to create a Journey in one day. These will be based on the traditional Journeys: It’s Your Planet-Love it, It’s Your Story-Tell it, and It’s Your World-Change it!
