Girl Scouts of Southwest Indiana, Inc. | Safety
Nothing is more important in Girl Scouting than ensuring the health and safety of girls. Health and safety extend to developing safety consciousness in girls and adults, as well as training staff, volunteers, and girls to ensure proper supervision, prevention of accidents and incidents, and maintenance of program resources.
Girl Scouts covers safety from all angles in several resources available to volunteers through your local council:
•Volunteer Essentials Handbook, our national volunteer handbook, devotes an entire chapter to volunteers' responsibilities for protecting girls' emotional and physical well-being.
•Safety Activity Checkpoints, in-depth safety information and tips that adult volunteers use for Girl Scout sports and activities; girls can also use these checkpoints to ready their group for a girl-led activity.
