GSNI Volunteers asked for it, so we made it! The Big Book has everything you need to plan a successful 2015-2016 Girl Scout year! This comprehensive book includes ALL Girl Scout events and ALL volunteer trainings for the whole year. In addition, The Big Book includes a welcome guide, called "We Are GSNI" that provides information about our council and the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Towards the back of The Big Book, we included additional troop resources such as Badge of the Month Club, and Journey Jumpstarts.
