We are very excited to announce the revision and reboot of the Girl Scouts of Colorado’s “Power Up!” program. “Power Up!” is Girl Scouts of Colorado’s anti-bullying program for youth in grades fourth through twelfth that engages participants to think critically about different types of bullying and encourages participants to stand up and speak out against bullying behaviors. Whether the elements of this program are used in a troop meeting or presented as a half-day session at a school, participants will leave the program with an understanding of their role in preventing the cycle of bullying. Through revisions by the Older Girl Advisory Board and feedback from pilot troops, we have taken what was already a great program and brought it to the next level to meet the current needs of girls in Colorado.
Who is this program for? “Power Up!” is for girls in grades fourth through twelfth.
How do I access the curriculum? Troop leaders can access the “Power Up!” Facilitator training online through their gsLearn account. They will have to watch a 15-minute video walking them through the facilitator guide, as well as provide information about the structure of the program. Questions on accessing your account? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can girls lead this program? Yes! If girls have earned their Program Aide award or have significant experience leading girls through activities, they can facilitate the program to other Girl Scouts. Girls can charge a small fee for the program to cover their costs and earn money for their troop. Specific questions about money earning should be directed to GirlExperience@gscolorado.org.
Is there a patch? Yes! After girls complete the program, patches can be purchased through the Girl Scouts of Colorado Shop by calling (855) 472-7026.
Want an opportunity to attend a “Power Up!” course? Due to a grant through Rotary Club of Fort Collins Breakfast, we have an offering in Fort Collins on November 9, 2019. https://www.girlscoutsofcolorado.org/en/events-repository/2019/power_up_.html .
