Creating A Troop Agreement – Troops & Parents

Having a troop agreement is an excellent way to prevent conflict and create a happy, safe, and healthy environment – both with girls and parents. Girls should be held accountable and responsible for their own actions. Girls will develop their. own "rules of engagement" through development of a Troop Agreement. Here is a sample that you can use and change as needed.

BRAND RESOURCES

Lockups and Acronym Marks:

A brand is only as strong as the symbols that represent it. To establish a unified Girl Scouts voice, we’ll now use an optimized and streamlined set of marks developed by GSUSA. Please reference this Guide for Usage of Girl Scout Marks when using these logos. These logos are primarily intended for flyers and internal service unit communications. If you have need to incorporate these on merchandise (patches, shirts, ect.) or external facing collateral assets please reach out to us at marcom@girlscoutsoc.org for assistance in navigating GSUSA licensing requirements.

Brand Story:

A brand story outlines exactly what an organization does, for whom, and what makes it stand out. Because Girl Scouts themselves (and not the organization) are, and always should be, at the center of everything we do, the statement that follows speaks directly to them. 

And much like our brand purpose to champion girl ambition, the statement isn’t meant to be used verbatim but as top-of-mind inspiration when you write and communicate about Girl Scouts. Revisit it frequently to remind yourself who we serve, how we serve them, and why.  

Please reference our Writing Tips for Service Unit Volunteers for some quick pointers and refreshers to guide you in writing about Girl Scouts.
