Files to help you with troop finances (yearly report, how to for bank accounts,sales tax exemption form) are now available in the Documents/Leaders section under Financial.

Don't forget to seek sales tax exemption for troop expenditures like craft items, tools, meeting supplies, etc.  It can really stretch troop dollars!

Volunteer Forms on Council Website - Check it out

posted Dec 12, 2013, 1:13 PM by GirlScouts WWP   [ updated Dec 12, 2013, 1:14 PM ]

Ever wonder where you can find the latest version of trip forms, girl health forms, photo release form, insurance, etc.?  They are all available in a handy place called Volunteer Forms on the GSofC&SNJ website:


Useful troop items like the Girl Health History, Council Cares and the Troop Financial Summary can be found under Troop/Group Forms on this page.

As these forms frequently change, we generally will not repost the files here.  It is a good idea to check that you have the latest form every so often before using it.

Girls Scouts is a fun youth development program for girls, that teaches girls “courage, confidence and character to make the work a better place.”  They can make new friends, broaden their horizons, and develop leadership skills in an engaging setting.   Girls can join scouting anywhere from kindergarten through 12th grade.  If you have a daughter that might be interested, you can check out the overall Girl Scouting program at www.girlscouts.org.  If you are interested and live in West Windsor or Plainsboro, send an email to girlscoutswwp@verizon.net.  Please include the following information and we’ll work on finding a spot for your daughter in Girl Scouts.  We work on organizing troops and placing girls into troops over the summer.  The sooner you ask, the more likely it is she will get a spot!

How parent can help?  (troop leader or assistant leader, meeting chaperone, trip chaperone, driver for trips, cookie sale manager, other-not sure)
Any special requests:
 
Girl Scouts is a volunteer based organization.  We rely on parents to lead troops, chaperone meetings & trips, drive for trips, manage the troop’s cookie sale, etc.  What we need most are troop leaders.  Being a troop leader is very rewarding; it is a great experience to share with your daughter.  Please let us know how you think you might be able to help.
 
Also, if you have any special requests, please let us know.  For example, if your daughter really wants to be in the same troop as a specific girl, let us know.  Be aware that most of our troops serve a single grade.  So, this typically is only feasible if the girls are the same grade.  Also, if your daughter has a lot of schedule limitations, you can share that with us, so we don’t assign her to a troop that meets at a time that doesn’t work.
