Following the Girl Scout Promise & Law online

In response to concerns about online behavior that does not follow the Girl Scout Promise and Law, Girl Scouts of Colorado (GSCO) has developed a series of guidelines for all members, including girls, volunteers, staff members, adult members, etc. Please keep in mind that the online world is constantly evolving, so this blog will be updated as often as needed to reflect those changes. If you have any questions/concerns, please consult a member of the GSCO Marketing and Communications Department or email inquiry@gscolorado.org.

Think before you type. When representing yourself as a GSCO member online, think about the messages you are putting forth and how they will be perceived. You are responsible for what you write or say online about GSCO, even if it is on your personal social media channels. The same rules that apply offline apply online. Use good judgment and common sense. Please do not write or post anything that would embarrass other members or reflect badly on our organization.

Some people just want to fight. We can’t control the message all of the time, so don’t connect/ follow people/organizations simply to monitor their activity/argue with them. If you encounter someone who is posting incorrect information about Girl Scouts, let GSCO know. We also monitor social media and respond to inaccurate reports and misinformation. Feel free to “set the record straight” from your personal account, but do not engage in a continuous argument.

Use hashtags appropriately. Be sure to research any hashtag before using it and check it regularly. A seemingly innocent hashtag may not be. You also want to make sure you are using hashtags correctly and associating Girl Scouts with the right groups. GSCO regularly uses the following hashtags:

Instagram: #GSColo, #gscolorado, #girlscoutsco, #girlscoutscolorado, #girlscoutsofcolorado, #gsGoldAward, #GirlScoutsGiveBack, #gsoutdoors

Twitter: #GSColo, #gsGoldAward, #GirlScoutsGiveBack, #gsoutdoors

Don’t know? Ask! Know what you are talking about when you engage with others. If you are unsure, ask! If someone has a question you can’t answer, ask them to email the question to inquiry@gscolorado.org.

Because of Girl Scouts…

From Girl Scouts of the USA

Ever since the first Girl Scout troop was formed more than 100 years ago, Girl Scouts has provided girls with transformative experiences. Because of Girl Scouts, millions of G.I.R.L.s (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) have been prepared for a lifetime of leadership—from hiking under the stars to accepting a mission to the International Space Station; from lobbying the city council with their troop to holding a seat in Congress; from running their own cookie business to tackling cybersecurity.

Our girls are big thinkers, groundbreakers, and role models with access to plenty of unique girl-led experiences—yes, because of Girl Scouts.

We want to know what Girl Scouts has done for you! Share your story on social media using #becauseofGirlScouts—and be sure to tag @GSColo and @girlscouts on Instagram and Twitter!
