What We Do

GITSL encourages positive relationships with other girls. We incorporate team building activities during warmups and depending on the topic, engage in small group work and pair work.

While also working on the empowerment of the individual girl, girls always have opportunities to present in front of the group.

The more a girl presents, the more confidence she builds. 

Girls can participate in:

We encourage connection - with other, with groups and with community.

Why Do We Do It?

We start with helping girls gain a sense of who they are and the power of a "can-do" mindset. It's a place where girls learn their strengths.

When girls gain confidence in who they are and what they can do, they are open to new experiences, taking initiative, working well with others and expressing their own interests and passions. These skills can help them grow into the leaders of tomorrow. 

Girls will build self-esteem and confidence.

How Do We Do It?

Meeting on a regular basis allows for skill building through personal, fun and engaging activities to include:

  • movement 

  • storytelling

  • public speaking

  • songwriting

  • creative writing

  • presenting!

 We want to have fun, learn and grow!

Where does our curriculum come from? The curriculum for Girls in the Spotlight programs and Girls Launch is licensed from Escape Velocity, LLC.

Our historic Biz Girls curriculum designed for high school students was the first program delivered in 2015 when we became a 501c3. Originally it was a program under the Rockies Venture Club until the Executive Director, Peter Adams,  decided to spin it out as a non-profit with its own leadership team. Two of the original leaders, Hope Hartman and Denichiro "Denny" Otsuga, Ph.D. remain highly involved with the organization today.
