Volunteers-in-Training (VIT) are girls who have completed 9th grade who would like to mentor a Girl Scout Daisy, Brownie, Junior, or Cadette group outside of the camp experience (girls in 10th-12th grade are eligible for this award). The skills learned are also applicable to everyday life and will help girls become confident, effective leaders in everything they do. Becoming a Volunteer-in-Training is also a great résumé boost for girls and sets them up for success when going for their Gold!
Requirements to become a Volunteer-in-Training and earn the VIT pin:
- Find a mentor volunteer who is currently the adult volunteer leader for a group of girls at the level (Daisy, Brownie, Junior, or Cadette) you would like to work with. The adult volunteer will help you through your training and internship, and you will help the volunteer with their group of girls for a three-to-six month period.
- Complete the Volunteer-in-Training Council Leadership Course. Check out our Activity Calendar for more VIT opportunities!
- Create and implement a thoughtful program based on a Journey or Badge conducted over four or more sessions. Be responsible for designing, planning, and evaluating the activities.
