Happy New Leader November!

October was the first month of our new membership year and it flew by (because of all the amazing activities!). Now, we’re in one of our favorite months, New Leader November!

Okay, so maybe we add the ‘new leader’ part, but we love celebrating our new troop volunteers in November. We couldn’t deliver on our mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character without the support and leadership of our amazing volunteers.

There’s no ‘right’ time to become a leader because troops are forming and girls are joining all year long, but in November you’re finally settled into your new fall rhythms and you have time to establish your troop, plan your activities, and get pumped for the upcoming Girl Scout Cookie Program.

Check out the video below for more information about New Leader November and visit gswny.org/join to volunteer today!

If you have any questions/comments/concerns, please reach out to Customer Care at 1-888-837-6410 or customercare@gswny.org.

Happy New Leader November!

November is a month built on being thankful and we take that seriously at Girl Scouts of Western New York. We’re one month into our new membership year, and we want to thank all of our new leaders!

Throughout the month, we’re celebrating our new leaders with fun giveaways, resources at the Girl Scout shop, and Facebook Lives/Instagram Stories about the Four Pillars of Girl Scouts – Outdoors, STEM, Entrepreneurship, and Life Skills. For more details, you can check out our schedule below and visit the Volunteer Training Page.

More than what we’re doing, we want to see what YOU’RE doing! Share your pictures and stories with using the #newleadergswny and #newleadernovember hashtags across social media and by emailing us your adventures at communications@gswny.org.
