Troop Leaders and Advisors are responsible for reviewing safety guidelines in Volunteer Essentials before they leave their meeting site. Even then, they continue to be the “Adult in Charge.” Knowledge of Girl Scout policies is not required to post or reply to offerings on the GSCB Pixie List. To learn more about how to use the GSCB Pixie List, take time to watch the Video Tutorial.
Please refrain from posting detailed personal information on the GSCB Pixie List, such as home addresses and phone numbers. When meeting new volunteers or exchanging materials, meet during the day in a public place. If you experience any suspicious behavior or abuse of the GSCB Pixie List, please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
