Girl Scouts in troops will decide, along with their adult volunteers, how often they want to meet. Consider school schedules, family needs, scheduled events, religious holidays, and availability of transportation and meeting places to ensure full participation. Many schools, churches or community centers offer free or low cost meeting spaces for Girl Scout meetings. Use the resources and contacts from other Girl Scout volunteers and troop family members to find the perfect meeting spot.

Meeting areas need to be safe, secure, clean, and have at least two exits. The area should be large enough for a variety of activities, accessible to those with disabilities, and pet-free. Facility use contracts need to be signed by a council representative. Submit these contracts to your local service center.

First Four Meetings
New leaders who have taken Council 101: Welcome to Girl Scouts of Wisconsin Southeast but have not been able to take their Leadership Essentials training and want to meet with their troops, may use the First Four Meetings as a guide.

Meet with parents at the start of each membership year.
