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.
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 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
