Plan Your Girl Scout Year

The VTK offers pre-written Year Plans which will create meeting agendas for your entire year based on the meeting dates you specify. This can aide in communicating to leader and parent teams how many awesome things you can do in one Girl Scout year!

Your troop's team of leaders can update the order of meetings, edit agendas, change activities, and share information with each other ane parents via email. It's easy to add additional meetings and activities (like trips and special events). 

The VTK can help facilitate Girl-Led Planning!

Utilize the pre-written plans as a guide for involving the girls in the planning process. For example: The “Junior Badge” year plan includes two meetings to work on the Savvy Shopper badge.

If you know that your girls have other interests, you can let them lead 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


The 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!
