Workshops Offered by Outside Agencies

Many outside agencies offer valuable training opportunities, some of which are listed below. Registration is handled by the sponsoring agency (not GSOSW).

Child Abuse & Reporting

This optional course covers the identification & prevention of child abuse/neglect and reporting procedures. According to our council's policies, all volunteers shall immediately report any incidents or strong suspicions of child abuse or neglect to the appropriate agency and inform Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington. We'd like to be clear that the law does not require your volunteer position to report child abuse; it is our council's policies that require you to report.

This course was developed by representatives from various education service districts, school districts and welfare organizations. We are only providing the link to this online resource; we are not responsible for the content and cannot help with any technical difficulties you may experience.
