Girls across Colorado are out learning the 5 Skills while they sell cookies. We’re more than halfway through the 2018 Girl Scout Cookie Program, which ends on March 11, and we love seeing the amazing #BlingYourBooth entries, Best Cookie Dad stories, and more!
2018 Cookie Program is a smash!
Eden from Colorado Springs told us about her Cookie Dad on the GSCO Blog:
My dad works really hard in the Army and I know he would love to kick back and relax and watch the Super Bowl or the Olympics, but he gives his time to me and my siblings instead. I think he’s the one that deserves a gold medal because he’s an awesome, giving Cookie Dad!
New online resources
We’ve been updating some resources to make your life easier. Check them out:
- Our new Family Guide to Girl Scouts is a fun look at what our program is all about!
- A new and improved Volunteer Essentials is up on the GSCO Blog.
You’ll find these resources and much more in the My GS – Volunteer Toolkit. The toolkit is not just for volunteers. Families can access badge and Journey plans, articles on raising awesome girls, information about Girl Scout traditions and much more. Check it out today!
April 22 is National Girl Scout Leaders’ Day
Encourage your Girl Scouts to show their appreciation of troop leaders, troop support volunteers, and helpers by doing something special for them, like making a card or taking time out in a troop meeting to say thank you.
e-Learning: Not just for volunteers
Our free e-learning portal offers all kinds of interesting classes that are open to everyone! Take a little time to participate in a class and enrich your Girl Scout experience.
Join Daisy’s Circle monthly giving
We are Girl Scout Sisters.
We often talk about the benefits girls receive by being members of Girl Scouts: New skills, confidence, and lifelong friendships, to name a few. We never really talk about what adults get out of Girl Scouting. Read one volunteer’s story.
It’s so easy to join! The bigger the circle, the bigger the impact!
