Girl Scout Launch Party Steps (10 possible points)
Talk with Membership Coordinator and Recruitment Specialist to help host SU’s Girl Scout Launch Party where new families looking to join can experience what Girl Scouts is all about and join a troop!
Families typically sign their children up for events and programs in the fall, when the new school year begins, so it's important to regularly advertise and promote Girl Scouts August - November.
To ensure you have a successful fall recruitment, network with your schools.
- Introduce yourself to the Principal, Office Manager, and PTA/PTO President as a Girl Scout volunteer who can help assist parents in getting involved with Girl Scouts.
- Ask what the school will allow in terms of advertising (banners, paper flyers, stickering, tabling at dismissal).
- Keep an eye out for recruitment opportunities (like book fairs, family movie nights, open houses or back to school nights) where you can have a Girl Scout presence.
- Schedule a meeting with your principal to talk about Girl Scouting.
- Talk with your PTA/PTO about coming to a meeting and speaking about the benefits of the Girl Scout program.
- Talk with teachers or school counselors about Girl Scouts and its benefits.
- Give back! See if the troops at the school can come together and do a service project like plant a garden, repaint tables or perform flag ceremonies.
- Show some Girl Scout pride! Have the girls wear their vests and Girl Scout gear to school one day.
And of course, hold recruitment events (which we call Girl Scout Launch Parties) to form new troops!
