Volunteer Spotlight: Christie Waldrep

Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Christie Waldrep of Arvada in the Metro Denver region is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.

GSCO asked Christie 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 volunteer for Girl Scouts when my daughter’s troop leader quit coming.

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

I have a multi-level troop ranging from first through eighth graders. I am service unit fall product program manager, as well as the troop product program manager.

What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?

I have learned it is hard to keep a troop together and even harder to find volunteers. In the last seven years of being my daughter’s leader, I have had ten co-leaders.

What do you hope girls have learned from you?

I hope the girls learn skills they didn’t know they are capable of doing, like sewing, climbing, and being a leader.

How has your experience as a volunteer helped you become a G.I.R.L. (go-getter, innovator, risk-taker, leader)?

I feel like I have become a go-getter by just keeping some of my older girls in the troop into middle school and a risk-taker by bringing on new parents almost every year, looking for someone willing to help me lead the next generation.
