Volunteer Spotlight: Danielle Sullivan

Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Danielle Sullivan in the Pueblo & Southeastern CO region is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.

GSCO asked Danielle 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 leader to spend more time with my oldest daughter. We chose Girl Scouts as that outlet because I was a Girl Scout and I wanted to help my daughter to become more comfortable in her own skin.

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

I like to take part in all the crafts that our girls get involved in from volcano making to weaving no sew blankets for our sister Girl Scout in Mexico. I also love being involved with the planning of all our trips from a short hike to a weekend long camping trip, which involves a little bit more discipline on the girls’ part and mine.  Our troop loves to learn and explore, hoping for more wonder in their eyes.

What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?

I have learned so much from being a troop leader my favorite things I’ve learned is how to stay calm with so many different personalities.  I have also learned how to take risks for my girls and myself in my job and in our free time.

What do you hope girls have learned from you?

I have tried to teach my girls to be brave and strong and that if they put their minds to it  they can do anything.
