This joint venture with Girl Scouts of Colorado and Colorado Reads will help educate the next generation of leaders about the importance of literacy through peer mentoring and girl-led Take Action service. GSCO’s partnership with Colorado Reads will focus on programs in the My World initiative, with the goal of helping Girls Scouts become advocates for literacy. In partnering with community organizations and mobilizing passionate individuals to strengthen the early childhood system in every corner of the state, Colorado is gaining ground on literacy proficiency.
From January to April we challenge you and your troop to run a book drive in your area and find a partner to donate the books to for a chance to meet with the Lieutenant Governor to promote Colorado Literacy Month and earn a badge. If you do any other activities please let us know by emailing email@example.com so we can share your great work! Have some suggestions or tips on how to run a book drive during cookie season? Send them our way.
Find something that inspires you and your Girl Scout troop to make a difference! For more details on how to get these activities started in your troop download the Leading through Reading program packet.
Yes! A partnership is a great way to foster a lasting bond between the local community and a Girl Scout troop. In addition to establishing Girl Scouts as positive role models for students, participating will help boost feelings of self-esteem amongst the Girl Scouts. Your troop may wish to partner with a local school or a high-risk school. Contact the school or school district you wish to partner with to learn about policies and how to become involved in the school. Have a basic plan in mind when calling.
If you run a program activity please let us know! You can contact firstname.lastname@example.org to fill us in on your activities and if you run a program between January-April you may get the opportunity to meet with the Lieutenant Governor to help promote Colorado Literacy Week in May!
