Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and
emotional safety of girls, and we demonstrate that by agreeing to
follow these 12 Safety Guidelines at all times. As part of
your safety responsibility as a volunteer, please become familiar with
the safety information in the Safety-Wise chapter of the Volunteer
Essentials Handbook 2015-2016.
As you plan specific activities, use the checkpoints below to assist
you in planning for a safe activity. Each checkpoint offers
information on where to do the activity, how to include girls with
disabilities, where to find both basic and specialized gear required
for the activity, how to prepare yourselves in advance of the
activity, what specific steps to follow on the day of the activity,
and so on.
