Volunteer Spotlight: Stacy White

Girl Scouts of Colorado is celebrating extraordinary volunteers throughout the state in honor of Volunteer Appreciation Month. Stacy White is a shining example of the wonderful role Girl Scout volunteers play in the lives of girls and our community.

GSCO asked Stacy 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 for a few reasons! First, I loved my time as a Girl Scout when I was growing up and wanted to share that experience with my daughters. I was lucky to have some really amazing female role models in my life and have always taken to heart that I would pay it forward by being who I needed when I was a kiddo to other kiddos now. Girl Scouts teaches these girls so much about who they are and allows them to develop a sense of compassion, mindfulness, adventure, and grit while giving them the tools and an outlet to share and grow.

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

When I first joined Girl Scouts as a volunteer, I started out with a small group of four girls looking for a fifth to make us a real troop. We have now grown to 18+ girls. One season I was able to volunteer in our service unit’s outdoor committee. I made so many connections and friendships during that time that it has been an ongoing reward in my life.

What have you learned as a Girl Scout volunteer?

I have learned so much during my time as a Girl Scout volunteer. From multiple ways to start a campfire to tying knots or learning to code right along with the girls in our troop to how to better communicate, show compassion, be flexible, and listen.  Each girl that has been in our troop has taught me some kind of life lesson that I will carry with me the rest of my life.

What do you hope girls have learned from you?


I hope that I have shown the girls in my troop that kindness, compassion, and thoughtfulness has the ability to make everyone you touch in your life feel special. I hope I have taught them to be brave, confident, and to recognize their individual talents or unique qualities and grow them.
