PLEASE NOTE: Badge Boss/Career Expert experiences are free but Troops or individual girls may be asked to provide supplies for activities. Badge Bosses are adults who volunteer to help girls/troops earn badges! Badge Bosses choose the badge they want to offer. Career Experts share what it is like to be employed in a particular profession. Badge Bosses and Career Experts are not required to be Girl Scout members ( though some are)  or complete a criminal background check ( though some do) . Badge Bosses and Career  Experts are not responsible for supervision and therefore should not be left alone with girls. For the safety of our members, troops should maintain the appropriate child to adult ratios with their own approved volunteers. If you have questions,  please contact Candace Harmon at charmon@gsneo.org
