From Stephanie A. Foote, President & CEO of Girl Scouts of Colorado
You may not wear a mask or a cape, but your uncanny ability to help girls charge toward their destinies is nothing short of super!
We’re continually wowed and humbled by our volunteers’ collective super powers. Being a Girl Scout volunteer isn’t always easy, and we can’t thank you enough for the energy, positivity, and love you give every day. (Don’t think we didn’t notice!).
As we celebrate Volunteer Appreciation Month, we want you to know that you are the reason Girl Scouts continues to be the best leadership development program for girls. You open the doors of possibility for millions of girls who will make the world a better place—— and that’s real power.
Because the work you do with girls is not just for a better today but also ensures the best tomorrow, Girl Scouts of Colorado has made a donation to the Restoring Colorado’s Forest Fund in YOUR HONOR. Our partnership with the Colorado State Forest Service is a perfect fit. The gift of seedling trees to be planted in areas impacted by wildfires and other natural disasters will make a difference for generations to come.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you from all of us at Girl Scouts of Colorado.
Celebrate World Environment Day
Girl Scouts, families, and friends are invited to celebrate World Environment Day at Meadow Mountain Ranch on Sunday, June 16.
In partnership with the Colorado State Forest Service, Girl Scouts of Colorado is excited to offer members a way to focus on and celebrate the environment. World Environment Day is a global occasion to highlight and discus the importance of environmental awareness and action. When celebrating World Environment Day, Girl Scouts honor Juliette Gordon Low’s legacy, by promoting respect and love of the great outdoors far and wide. Through Girl Scouting, girls see the earth as their home. Whether they’re learning about endangered wildlife, developing creative recycling projects, or working toward a grade-level award, girls focus on care, conservation, and responsibility. They make sure the beauty and wonder of our planet endure for future generations to enjoy.
Girls will have the opportunity to participate in several activities across the camp property throughout the day. The event is open-house style and you’re welcome to come for the whole event, or part of it, and participate in whichever activities interest you.
Celebrating you dedication
