Whether you’re a Girl Scout alum, girl member, dedicated volunteer, supporter, or simply have an extraordinary Girl Scout in your life, you’re an important part of the Girl Scout family. And you know what families do together? Celebrate! Girl Scout Week is definitely something to celebrate—seven straight days to show off your Girl Scout pride and lift up all that this worldwide sisterhood has given you, your community, and our world.
Girl Scout Week 2020 is Sunday, March 8, through Saturday, March 14. In addition to celebrating with your Girl Scout sisters, invite the community to join in! Share the Girl Scout Week Proclamation with leaders in your city/town, county, etc. and have them officially declare Girl Scout Week.
Finally, join Girl Scouts of Colorado in treating each day of Girl Scout Week, as a day of action focused on a powerful yet simple way to get involved.
