Mission Statement

Girl Scouts builds girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts of Colorado makes it easy, meaningful and fun for girls and volunteers to grow as leaders.

Organization History

Girl Scouts of Colorado serves 22,000 girls ages 5-17 throughout Colorado with the assistance of 10,000 adult volunteers. Prior to the 2007 merger, individual Girl Scout councils have existed in Colorado since 1917. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon "Daisy" Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we've honored her vision and legacy.

Girl Scout Promise
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.

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,
respect authority,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Testimonials

"Girl Scouts and in particular the Gold Award has given me unique opportunities to become courageous, caring, and confident, while actively practicing leadership skills that greatly impact the world. Girl Scouts also gave me the opportunity to identify and pursue my passion. I found that following your passion is the key to choosing and accomplishing highest awards projects." Sarah Greichen, 2016 Gold Award recipient and National Young Woman of Distinction

"As a Girl Scout volunteer, I've learned to step up and speak up for myself and my daughter and our opinions count just as much as anybody else's. As a volunteer, we are here to help the girls become the best they can be as they grow and mature. I hope the girls have learned to respect and treat each other as equals and always keep in mind that not one of is better or more important than the next girl." Amanda Pope, Volunteer
