Training and Planning Tools
Local Support and Training

Girl Scouts of Colorado has several trainings to support you and your girl in the Girl Scout program. If you need more help outside of these trainings, please contact your Volunteer Support Specialist or reach out to us at

The Leading Through Crisis learning path (gsLearn): Courses to support you through these new times. Find resources about mental health, running virtual troop meetings, and even some courses you can take in preparation to being able to meet in person again!

Virtual Troop Meetings 101 (live virtual): Get hands-on with Journeys and badges, plan and partner with your girls and create a network of support to make the troop experiences meaningful and fun. Learn how to leverage virtual meetings for talking and planning, followed by in person get-togethers for fun and learning experiences, when it's possible.

Meeting Planning Tools

Check out these tried-and-true resources from fellow troop leaders who successfully adapted their meetings for in-person-safe and virtual settings.

Mental Health Resources

GSCO Mental Health Resources
Over the past 10 years, we have seen a significant rise in mental health conditions in our girls. Statistics show that we are seeing sobering rates of depression, anxiety and loneliness in our youth and with over half of these conditions starting by the age of 14. With challenges of the pandemic, a rise in social stressors, and the overall coping with all of these has brought mental health as a top concern for you, your Girl Scouts, and their families.

We at Girl Scouts of Colorado hear those concerns and are actively working to develop programming that will help cope and work through mental health concerns. You can expect to see communications from us on tips, resources, workshops and other engagements for volunteers, Girl Scouts, and your Girl Scout family. We have already started work on our mental health initiative and will update this PDF as we have the materials.

If you or someone you know is in immediate danger, please CALL 911 or go to the nearest emergency room.
