Volunteer Spotlight: Amber Kelley

Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Amber Kelley from the Northern & Northeastern CO region is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.

GSCO asked Amber to answer a few quick questions about her volunteer experience. We hope you find her as inspiring as we did.

Why did you become a Girl Scout volunteer?

I became a Girl Scout volunteer because I was inspired by what the community meant to the girls. Our troop leaders had unexpected life changes and had to step down from leading the troop. I did not want this precious group of girls to lose their community. It is so important to have a community that is safe, empowering, and FUN! 

Tell us about your different volunteer roles as a Girl Scout.

  1. First Aid trained helper for camp

  2. Assistant to planning and preparing for meetings with our troop leaders as a parent volunteer

  3. Fall Fundraiser organizer

  4. Troop leader

What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?

I have learned that it is important to listen to the girls in your troop. They have the most amazing ideas and plans. They ask to do service projects for others. They dream big. They are generous. They will tell you exactly what they want their community to be like and it will be successful because they are doing things that interest them.

What do you hope girls have learned from you?

I hope that the girls in our troop have learned that their thoughts and ideas are important and that their contributions to the troop and this world are meaningful and appreciated.
