Girl Scouts is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls, dedicated to building girls of courage, confidence and character who make the world a better place. Girl Scouts of Colorado (GSCO) has 120 staff throughout the state who support 20,000 girl members and 10,000 adult members and volunteers to prepare girls to create unique leadership paths, ignite change, and share a worldwide sisterhood through girl-led traditions and new experiences.
Imagine a world in which every girl in the state of Colorado enters middle school with a positive self-image, firmly knowing that she can be and do anything. This girl is kind and courageous. Empathetic and tough. Understands what makes a healthy relationship. She sets goals and is willing to step out of her comfort zone. She advocates for others and cares for our planet. Imagine every girl coming into this challenging time of life with that sort of foundation and with a support system to carry her though her high school years and keep her grounded. Imagine what this girl can do for herself, for her community and for our world. That’s what Girl Scouts is all about.
We envision a world where every girl feels good about who she is; she resolves conflict, promotes cooperation and develops healthy relationships; she’s a resourceful problem-solver who advocates for herself and others; she feels empowered to change the world. Imagine what she will do for our world. We believe transformational leadership begins in girlhood.
Girl Scouts of Colorado is committed to creating an environment where all girls have the opportunity to participate in a movement that encourages them to overcome barriers and become leaders in their community and world. All Girl Scouts of Colorado staff, volunteers, and members are expected to think, speak, and act in ways that ensure all people feel they belong and can meaningfully participate in all aspects of Girl Scouting, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, alienage or national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, disability, gender, marital status, familial status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identification, genetic information, public assistance, local human rights commission activity, or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state, or local laws.
