Angie Lopez is the Membership Director with Girl Scouts of Southern Arizona. She oversees five teams spanning seven counties. She is responsible for growing and supporting the Girl Scout movement. The Girl Scouts mission: Build girls of courage, confidence and character who can make the world a better place.
Angie worked in the juvenile justice system for 17 years. For most of those years, she concentrated on assisting Arizona juvenile courts with developing and implementing system improvement strategies that were rooted in equity, collaboration, and data-driven decision making. During those years, Angie became all too familiar with the stories of young people who lacked the positive supports that all young people deserve and need to thrive. Angie worked closely with many community organizations and groups, including the Girl Scouts and the Catalina Rotary Club, in order to support young people in the Tucson community.
Angie has served on a variety of local, state and national committees. These include co-chairing the Network for Equity and Education Development (NEED), a group of system and community stakeholders working together to address disparities for black youth in the juvenile justice system.
Angie has a passion for serving girls, youth and families in the Tucson community. She is also a devoted mother, hiker, traveler, and a graduate of the University of Arizona.
