An Excellent Opportunity

We are looking for a Training Development Specialist who can help us successfully coach and prepare adult volunteers for working with Girl Scouts by providing them with quality training. We are on a mission to build girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. The right candidate won’t just be training Girl Scout volunteers.

Is this you?

  • Excellent critical thinking and problem-solving skills

  • Experienced working with volunteers
  • Great written and oral communication skills, including public presentations
  • Self-motivated and efficient with strong time-management skills
  • Strong knowledge of Microsoft Office; familiarity with Salesforce or Adobe Captivate, a plus
  • Girl Scout experience, especially as adult volunteer, is very helpful (but not critical)
