In the news: Girl Scouts guided through app development


By Ann Friedman, The Florida Times-Union

Jacksonville’s Deutsche Bank teamed up with Girl Scouts of Gateway Council for their inaugural “Women’s Leadership Day” on Oct. 14 and mentored the middle-schoolers on how to develop apps.

Over the past five months, four teams of Girl Scouts worked with 14 Deutsche Bank employees to cultivate apps to help find lost pets, aid domestic violence victims, provide teenagers with activities based on their interests and offer support for those who are experiencing depression.

The teams presented their apps to employees at Deutsche Bank’s Southside campus on Oct. 14.
