Tools for Resilience

We want to support our Girl Scout Community by offering some resources to assist in having these hard, but necessary conversations to help our girls heal from these continued tragedies. As they discover their strength in this healing process, we want to be here to help them rise to meet new challenges.

We know we do not have all the answers, but we pledge our commitment to navigating this path with you. We will continue to update these resources as circumstances change.

Support Tools

The following resources serve as a starting point for conversation and education.

Resources for Troop Leaders and Volunteers

Whether you're a parent/caregiver or Girl Scout troop leader, offering a safe space for your girl to talk about important issues is vital. Review these resources as you navigate discussions.
