Upcoming Training Sessions

If you have any questions regarding training, or would be interested in becoming a committee member or trainer please contact Provincial Training Adviser, Tricia Murrin at nl-training@girlguides.ca.

Descriptions of GGC Training Stream modules can be found on Member Zone

Commissioners can also request face to face sessions in their area/districts. Can’t get a night other than your meeting night? Maybe ask some parent helpers/Pathfinders/Rangers to be with the girls that night while you attend training in a room near by, or cancel a meeting a make it a district event. We will work with you to locate a place and set a date that will work for your Guiders. Other sessions are in the planning stages - stay tuned to our website and Facebook pages. Please contact the Training Committee at nl-training@girlguides.ca and we will do what we can to make your request a reality!
