Opt-in to the Troop Catalog and receive an exclusive patch!


Opt-In to the Troop Catalog

EXTENDED! The Opt-In deadline is now November 30, 2018.

Hoping to grow your troop this year? Opting-in to GSNorCal's online troop catalog helps girls and parent volunteers discover your troop and join in on the fun and learning! 

You can write your own troop description from scratch, or mix and match the sample troop descriptions provided in the form. If you opt-in to the catalog by November 30, 2018, the girls and leaders in your troop will receive an exclusive patch. And if your troop adds one or more girls before January 31, 2019, you’ll also receive the complementary rocker!

How do I opt-in?

1. Fill out and submit our online Opt-In Form. Share what your troop likes to do, when your troop meetings take place, and even the types of volunteer roles you're hoping to fill! 

2. Your troop will be added to the online catalog, so girls can start seeing what makes your troop unique right away.

3. When someone joins your troop, you’ll receive an email with the family's contact information so you can reach out to them directly.

Note: Troop leaders will be able to pick up their patches from their service unit leader meetings starting in December. 

FAQs

How many girls can I add?
You can add as many girls as you want to your troop!

What if my troop requires adults to volunteer?
If you require parents or caregivers to help out with the troop and complete registration and screening, add this information to your troop description. We’ve written an option for you to copy-paste in the form, or you can write your own.

My troop opted-in last year—can we still qualify for the patches?
If you filled out an online opt-in form in the past, you can qualify for the patch by resubmitting an online form between July 1, 2018 and November 30, 2018 to add at least one additional girl space.

We’re a new troop just starting for this membership year—can we still qualify for the patches?
If you fill out an online opt-in form between July 1, 2018 and November 30, 2018 and add at least one additional girl space in addition to the pre-set 12, you will receive your patches!
