Girl Scouts Leader Binder

A couple weeks ago, Evelyn and I attended a Girl Scouts recruitment meeting. They told us all the troops were full and anyone that would join that day would need new troop leaders. Tom and I had talked about the possibility of me becoming a troop leader, but we never solidified our decision. Not a single person raised their hand and people were avoiding eye contact. I raised my hand, still a little iffy, but she accepted me quickly. The representative said I would need helpers and two women from the front immediately raised their hands; and so it begun. The first thing I did when I got home, was create a new board in my Pinterest account, the second thing was start my leader binder. I took out some health sheets from a half inch binder and started filling it up with Girl Scout things. I started planning, then once I had the money, I bought three 1.5 inch binders, two packages of reenforced notebook paper, plastic sheet protectors, and three pencil pouches. I also bought 15 folders with brads and pockets for the parent folders. I made a simple front with our troop number, name, and a watermark of the daisy petals the girls earn. Opened up, the pencil pouch housed two pens and three gold arrow paper clips. As you can see, the front pouch has changed. I had a second pouch that house different notes and such and now have the pens for parents. The first thing I had printed up was the program guide for our Girl Scout Council. This is the start of my binders. I inserted a few things from the recruitment night into the Program Guide. I went through all the events, highlighted the events Daisy could attend, and struck out all events they couldn't or already passed. Next, was the sign in list from the recruitment meeting with the girls that would be in my troop. (Update: I made a new roster, we just got one more girl, and I made it vertical; it makes it much easier to read and use.) A large print of the layout of the Daisy tunic and vest, and beside it a page I made of the patches and pins the troop fees would pay for. (Update: I put in a different print out of this left page, that now has our Council ID.) I couldn't find a simple list of the petals, name, and color, so I made my own. Printed version of the brainstormed activities separated into their respective petal categories. Holding onto the Daisy membership pins for the Investiture. (Update: This is no longer in in my binder. We had an amazing Investiture!) Notebook paper, with reenforced holes. Membership forms for both adults and girls. A copy of the about me page; "I'm a Daisy Girl Scout!" Copy of Volunteer sign up. (Update: 'Application for Day Trip/Tours' has been added to my forms category. I actually fill those forms out on the computer and email them immediately; I keep this, and soon others like it, to keep on hand as a reference and incase of urgencies.) Plastic sheet protectors in the very back for future print outs and such. UPDATE: Since I posted this, I have changed a few things in my binder as our Troop has developed. I separated my binder in to categories: Roll, Petals, Activities, & Future Ideas, Most Recent Activity Coming Up, Completed Activities, Notes, and Forms. As I was shopping for science project stuff at The Dollar Tree and saw these vertical dividers. I really did need these. I had added dividers, but since I had plastic page protectors, they were mostly blocked. These vertical dividers helped me find what I need quickly. I still have my regular dividers also. 'Completed Activities' are the notes and plannings of each activity we've already done. This category will periodically be emptied and put into a separate folder so my binder isn't over packed with old news. You may ask, "Why keep them?" I am new to the council and we are getting many new troops this year. I've been chatting with other leaders about what we do and how we do it; keeping our notes can help me help another person. Another reason, we plan to make photo books to the girls at the end of the membership year, and our memories are not the best, notes help us remember what happened. I got a new pouch, on sale at Walmart for just $1, and it has two pouches. The slightly bigger, lower zipped pocket now houses paper clips, binder clips, and small sticky notes. Those white tabs are extra labels for my vertical dividers. We just had our first Cookie Training! I have my notes right up front in my left binder pocket. Cookie selling starts on January 14th! Having a binder is a must as a troop leader, as any leader, and I hope this helped you start yours. What do you have in your leader binder? Update: I no longer have these files to share. I give permission to copy/mimic my ideas from this Girl Scout Leader Binder in this post.

What to do at your first Girl Scout Daisy meeting

After tagging along to all her older sister's Girl Scout meetings and field trips, my kindergartner is finally a Daisy scout. She's so excited. Since I already lead an older girl troop, I figured I might as well lead the Daisies, too. I kind of have an idea of the things that work now and the things to skip or tweak, so hopefully this time around will be even better than the first. Poor older kids, having to be my guinea pigs until I get things figured out. And because I know how hard it is to come up with ideas for meetings, I thought it might be helpful to share what we did at our first meeting with you!

Girl Scout Cookie Sale Tips And Tricks

How to be the top seller in your troop! Girl Scout Cookie Program season is in full swing! In addition to its role as the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world, the sales of girl scout cookies stay local and help our young ladies have amazing experiences, build life skills, and grow as future leaders. To have the biggest impact on your troop’s young ladies, we’ll need to think beyond simply tossing order forms in your office kitchen or break room. Fortunately, we’ve put together the essential tips and tricks you need to sell the most cookies possible and lead your troops in sales in 2020! Start Strong The Girl Scout motto is “Be prepared,” so this tip shouldn’t come as a surprise. There are only so many days available to sell cookies, so being ready to go as early as possible will maximize selling time. Have your cookie sale decorations and signs ready to go on day one so you can start selling right away. Reach out to previous buyers to let them know you’re open for business and give them a way to order. Better still, canvas your neighborhood with cookie sale door hangers for a fun and non-obtrusive reminder. Make it easy on your customers and help yourself stay organized with a cookie booth tally sheet. Bling Your Cookie Booth You need to stand out to attract customers. Fortunately, booth design options have come a long way since the days of plastic tables and grandma’s old tablecloth. Now you can personalize you booth with a stylish Girl Scout cookie menu or add an eye-catching booth bunting to attract more customers. Theme ideas to choose from are nearly endless, as are the signage possibilities. We’ve picked a few of our favorites below: Superhero Cookie Sale Themes Sports Cookie Sale Themes - A great theme for Superbowl Weekend! Valentine’s Day Cookie Sale Themes Funny Cookie Sale Themes Pro tip: Use a cookie sales goal chart that illustrates progress toward your fundraising goal. When customers make a purchase, update your goal chart to reinforce their good deeds! Girl Scout Cookie Donations Many scouts are having success by actively offering a donation option for those who would like a way to contribute but don’t want the cookies for themselves. A popular option is having donations pledged to troops stationed overseas. Something as simple as having signage that gives folks a way to support our troops and local heroes is often all it takes! Donate Cookies to Troops/Heroes Pro tip: Don’t forget to have receipts handy for your customers! Get More Cookie Sales Even little things we do to make it easier on our customers can lead to a lot more sales. A couple of the things we’ve seen make a big difference include: Show them the way! Placing a few arrow signs indicating that a cookie booth is nearby can help you attract people you may have otherwise missed. Cookie options have changed over the years, and you can help customers by clearly displaying prices for each variety. Also, cash isn't king any longer - consider accepting other types of payment. Get creative and take your show on the road! Grab a wagon or cart and head to populated locations such as jogging paths or public piers. You can even turn your vehicle into a “drive thru” cookie booth. Cookie Sale Etiquette Saying “please” and “thank you” are not just polite things to do - the people who buy this year are next year’s repeat customers. A little added touch, like a well-designed gift tag, will leave a lasting impression on your customers. Last Call! Whether because it’s what helped the procrastinators finally buy their supply of cookies, or just because scarcity is a great motivator, letting people know that Girl Scout cookie season is almost over can propel a surge of last-minute sales. Accomplishing this can be as simple as posting some targeted booth signage during your last selling weekend. Pro tip: Another way to make last-minute or second-chance sales is to bring extra boxes of popular flavors with you when making deliveries. Let customers know you’ve got more for sale if they want to stock up! To boost sales across your whole troop, click here to download a free Girl Scout Cookie Checklist.
