Susan Hudeck, Membership Executive for Girl Scouts of Greater South Texas has a list of girls waiting to join troops.
“We have to have leaders for troops to be formed. Unfortunately, the Girl Scouts don’t have enough adults to serve as troop leaders,” Hudeck said.
“We have an overabundance of girls wanting to join the Scouts, but we don’t have enough men and women volunteering to be Scout leaders,” continued Hudeck.
She has begun reaching out to men and women in the community to lead a troop, most of which meet once or twice a month for about an hour.
Those who become troop leaders have the option of making it a traditional troop in which the leader finds a facility where the troop members can meet as often as they wish, or a school troop, composed of students from a particular school that typically meets after school on campus with support from the school principal. Each one of the schools in the county may host a troop, and there should be at least three troops, one for each age group, going at each school.
