We’re excited to announce new Journeys and badges for you to explore with your troop, coming July 18!
These new Journeys and badges not only make timely additions and enhancements to our existing girl programming, but also create a more robust experience, including Take Action projects, for subject areas that are most compelling to today’s girls—– science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and outdoor activities.
Combined with existing STEM and outdoor programs, as well as programming in life skills and entrepreneurship, these new Journeys and badges are designed to help girls unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™
as they achieve the five outcomes of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience: sense of self, positive values, challenge seeking, healthy relationships, and community problem solving.

Join the Older Girl Advisory Board
The Older Girl Advisory Board is recruiting new members in Pueblo, Western Slope/Southwest Colorado, and Metro Denver. The Older Girl Advisory Board, also known as OGAB, is a group of 14 girls in grades 9-12 from across the state who provide feedback on projects including mentoring, program development, older girl engagement, and product sales. Interested girls entering grades 9-12 for this school year can apply today
OGAB volunteers needed
OGAB is also seeking 2-3 adult volunteers to help guide this high-level group of girls in making their voices heard. Adult volunteers would act as chaperones during periodic overnight camp retreats and commit to sitting in on one web call a month with the OGAB representatives. Volunteers need to possess strong organizational and communication skills and work well with teenagers.
