Girl Scouts of Western Colorado

Who We Are at Girl Scouts of Colorado

The goal of all programming is to develop leadership skills in girls through hands-on, girl-led activities. The three keys to girl leadership are:

  • Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.
  • Connect: Girls care about, inspire and team with others locally and globally.
  • Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place.

The Girl Scouts of Colorado programming model is designed to ensure we achieve clear outcomes with our girls, and that all girls in Colorado have equal access to programming opportunities.  The Program Services Team works with volunteers across the state to provide events and series programs in their communities.  With this approach, we meet the needs of local communities and extend our programming to all corners of the state.  If you are interested in helping coordinate an event or series program, please contact us at programs@gscolorado.org.

Ways to Give

Girl Scouts has a unique approach that focuses on the whole girl to help her develop her full potential.  We’re working right nowto improve the lives of young women throughout Colorado.  Girl Scouts is the leading authority on girls’ healthy development and we are building girls of courage, confidence and character through our Girl Scout Leadership Experience every day.

Girl Scouts of Colorado relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations.  Cookies and other product sales generate 70% of Girl Scouts of Colorado’s annual revenue but we need your help to fill the gap.  While it only costs $15 to join Girl Scouts, it actually costs more than $400 per year to provide each girl with Girl Scout programs.  Opportunity grants are available for those who need them and Girl Scouts of Colorado provides more than $100,000 in financial assistance each year.

Whether you chose to support us by making a general donation today, with an annual pledge through your employer, by attending an event, remembering Girl Scouts in your estate planning or buying cookies from your local troops, thank you…we couldn’t do it without you!

On my honor, I will try:
To serve God and my country,
To  help people at all times,
And to live by the Girl Scout Law.

The Girl Scout Law

I will do my best to be:
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
and to
respect myself and others,

make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
