Girls Looking Forward

Girls Looking Forward

The Program

This program is for girls age 11-18 who are in alternative school or are in residential correction and treatment facilities. This program was created in 1982 in collaboration with the Division of Youth Corrections.


Girls Looking Forward is designed to increase self-confidence and assist girls in demonstrating more self-control, make better life decisions, have more self-respect and gain leadership skills.
The three keys to girl leadership are:

  • Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.
  • Connect: Girls care about, inspire and team with others locally and globally.
  • Take Action: Girls act to make the world a better place.

Girls are taught to express themselves in positive ways by recognizing their talents and taking better care of their minds and bodies.

How it works

Meetings are held either weekly or two times per month, during the day or early evening.  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, recruits girls, and recommends possible volunteers for the program. All girls receive Girl Scout membership. The cost is based on your organizational need and resources.
