Featured Resource of the Month
Colorado Reads and Girl Scouts of Colorado ask for your help to increase early childhood literacy rates in Colorado through take action projects.
In January through April, we challenge you to see how many books you can collect and deliver to those in need for a chance to get a patch and meet the Lieutenant Governor. If you are working on a literacy project or would like to learn about some other ideas and badge opportunities, please contact Cortney Healy at [email protected] 970-589-5866.
