Volunteer Appreciation

Girl Scout volunteers, we love you!

Every day, Girl Scout volunteers make it possible for girls across the country to enjoy and benefit from an adventure-having, skill-building, lead-taking, life-changing good time. It’s undeniable: without our volunteers’ commitment to unleashing the G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ in every girl, we couldn’t and wouldn’t be the largest girls’ leadership organization in the world. But we are. Thanks to them. And we love them for it.

That's why in April (National Volunteer Month!), we celebrate the powerful and inspiring contributions volunteers make all year long.

Recognize an outstanding volunteer by nominating them for a Girl Scouts of Colorado Volunteer Appreciation Award. For more information on the nomination process for these award, check out the Volunteer Appreciation Award Packet.

Nominations are due on or before March 31 of each year.
