Girls' Leadership Council

Our Decision to Discontinue the GLC

As part of our new strategic plan, WFCO pledged to remain focused in our work to advance and accelerate economic opportunities for Colorado women and their families through effective direct service programs and innovative policy solutions.

We knew this would mean making tough decisions about the use of our resources. One such decision was to sunset the Girls’ Leadership Council (GLC) in 2017. We celebrate 10 years of GLC fostering future community leaders and philanthropists, and are grateful to our donors, volunteers, speakers, and inspiring young women that made this program thrive. We especially thank Girls Inc. of Metro Denver for their expertise and partnership.

We are proud that the program ended on the highest note – the girls meeting and introducing Michelle Obama at our 30th anniversary celebration. Though GLC has ended, its 147 alumnae will be a part WFCO’s community forever and we commit to bringing youths’ voices into our work and elevating the unique needs and strengths of diverse young women in our state through the Dottie Lamm Leadership Award, internships, fellowships, and the work of our grantees.
