Troop Checklists Due June 15
Your  troop progress report is designed to help you review the progress girls in your troop experience during the Girl Scout program year. GSNYPENN staff use the information to help track progress towards the council goals, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience outcomes for girls, and to identify ways we can better support troops. The results are also a valuable tool for sharing outcomes for girls with United Ways and other funders in each area of our council.

Please complete the appropriate checklist by June 15, 2014.  Thanks so much!
