Most of us think about cookies when we think about The Girl Scouts, but the organization is about so much more than Thin Mints.
In this episode of Good & Grounded, which spotlights the Colorado leaders, nonprofits and businesses making a difference in our communities, we talk with Girl Scouts of Colorado CEO Leanna Clark and two high school graduates who recently earned their Gold Award, the highest achievement a Girl Scout can receive.
Listen to Clark and Girl Scouts Grace Bielefeldt and Elizabeth Gumper discuss:
- The organization’s dynamic programming in STEM, entrepreneurship, outdoor adventure and life skills
- The creative ways Colorado’s troops approached selling cookies and staying connected during the pandemic
- The community projects that Grace and Elizabeth launched during their time as Girl Scouts, including an art installation to highlight youth mental health and a program that helps students discover a variety of real-world careers
