Experience what Girl Scouting is all about - from the safety of your home

Girl Scouts isn’t somewhere girls go or something they do—it’s who they are day in, day out. The self-guided, free activities introduce girls to the fun world of Girl Scouting while helping them develop critical life skills. Once your girl tries a few activities, we hope you’ll become a member and experience everything that makes Girl Scouts the world’s preeminent leadership development program for girls.

Resources to Meet Virtually

Below is a list of free and low-cost tools troops and Communities in other councils are using for virtual meetings. While we cannot endorse or support specific online meeting tools, we encourage you to look at these and alternative options and discuss with parents and girls to determine what the best solution is for your troop or Community needs.

Video and Audio-Conferencing Tools (Preferred)

While all of these options have a free version, please note you may be prompted to consider their upgraded versions for a subscription fee.

Guidance on Using Zoom

Zoom - FAQ

  • Note: Meetings durations maximum of 40 minutes in free version

Updated 4/7/20: It is preferred that GSSJC members and staff refrain from using Zoom for meetings until current security issues have been addressed. Our council is monitoring this and will continue to provide updates. Please see the Video and Audio-Conferencing Tools section for alternative tools.

However, if you have no other options, here are Girl Scouts of the USA's guidelines all volunteers must adhere to when using Zoom:

  • Make all conference meetings password protected.
  • Discourage sharing meeting links on public-facing platforms.
  • Enable/Assign a Co-Host that has the same administration duties while the administrator/host presents.
  • Disable the Allow Removed Participants to Rejoin option, which prevents those kicked off the call to come back.

For even more meeting security, you can:

  • Disable all non-host screen sharing capabilities, making sure screen share capabilities remain host-only.
  • Enable the Waiting Room feature, which allows hosts of the meetings to see participants in a virtual staging area so they can be vetted before joining.
Chat and Collaboration Tools

While all of these options have a free version, please note you may be prompted to consider their upgraded versions for a subscription fee.

Additional Low-Cost Tools

Additional low-cost tools for collaboration and conferencing to consider if the above options do not meet your group's needs.
