Volunteer Spotlight: Jamie Schwarze

Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state. Jamie Schwarze in the Pueblo and Southern Colorado region is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.

GSCO asked Jamie 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 leader to help form my daughters troop with her friends.

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

I have been a troop leader for 3 years now and the Service Unit Cookie Manager for 2 years. I was the Troop cookie manager for one year and the Fall Produce manager for one year. It’s all so much fun!! 

What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?

I just love all of girls!! You definitely grow a very close relationship with them through Girl Scouts. I like that I can be a positive role model for them. I hope they feel the same way. 

What do you hope girls have learned from you?

I hope they learn to make themselves a priority. Take time for themselves, treat themselves, celebrate their accomplishments, and take time to relax and rejuvenate during hard times. You have to be your best self to give others the best version of you! But also, I learn so much from them. 

Nominate an exceptional volunteer for a Volunteer Award! Nominations are open April 1-June 30, 2022
