2020 VolCon Workshop - I'm New Here - Lingo, Learning & Laughs
New to Girl Scouts and feeling a little lost between the lingo and traditions? What are all these acronyms - VTK, WAGGGS, CO, JGL, GSOC, and why are my girls in a circle with their hands tied in a knot? Pearls? Silver and Gold? Wait, I thought you said your name is Erin...why did she just call you Maverick?
Come learn and laugh with us as we explain the wonderful world of Girl Scouting and what you need to know to feel more confident to delve into this fabulous journey with your troop, your troop families, and most importantly, the girls!
To attend this workshop, you must register for the 2020 Volunteer Conference. Confirmations to your individual workshops will be emailed to you prior to your session date.
