Girls Are Great

Girls Are Great

The Program

This program provides contemporary girl programming for adolescent girls in 5th through 8th grade. This program began in 1988 to address the tremendous amount of change girls in this age range are experiencing both physically and psychologically.


Girls Are Great provides girls with positive female role models and teaches them life skills, while increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem. The class focus is on goal-setting, decision-making, self-image, friendships, careers and communications skills. This all-girl setting is a safe and comfortable place for girls to open up, express themselves and form new friendships.

How it works

Girl Scouts of Colorado provides paid and/or volunteer adults to fill the role of “Troop Leaders.” The organization hosting the program provides a meeting location and help recruit girls and recommends possible volunteers for the program.  All girls receive Girl Scout membership. The cost is based on your organizational need and resources.
