the way to find alternate activities for those two meetings by
researching options, and making agenda changes together--all within
the VTK! More information about Girl-Led planning is available in
your grade level training resources.
To help you, your
leader team, and parents remember important dates throughout the
Girl Scout year, your Year Plan will show “Year Milestones.” These
orange banners appear in chronological order with your troop’s
meeting and activities.
Create and Edit Meeting Agendas
VTK serves as the go-to place for everyone within your troop to
see important information about meetings and activities, including
locations, times and materials needed.
Your whole team of
leaders can edit meeting agendas and meeting aide resources within
the VTK. When additional meetings or activities are created, you can
add resources from the VTK library onto your blank agenda.
Your girl's parents have read-only access to meeting agendas in
the VTK. This allows them to stay up-to-date on everything their
daughter is enjoying in Girl Scouts!
