Becoming a Learning Facilitator
To better serve more than 29,000 girls and 10,000 adults, we need energetic and dedicated volunteers to become council adult education Learning Facilitators.
Who can be a Learning Facilitator?
Anyone! Many times, Learning Facilitators are volunteers who have served the council in other ways as leaders, co-leaders, service team members, troop camp certified adults, first aiders or general troop helpers. Learning Facilitators may also be community volunteers with little or no Girl Scout experience. It doesn’t matter; we will train you! In all instances, Learning Facilitators are people who:
- Work effectively with other adults
- Are respected by adults around them
- Serve as role models for other adult volunteers
- Are dedicated to and support the principles of Girl Scouting
- Are able to give training commitments high priority in scheduling
- Are responsible, dependable, flexible and will follow through on commitments
