The Girl Scouts in our Community Development troops are from under-served communities across the north Florida. 80% of them are on free/reduced lunch or attend a Title 1 school, they make up 200% of the poverty line, are often first- or second-generation immigrants with their native language preferred at home and some are girls with physical, emotional and/or mental disabilities.
Community Development & Outreach
Empowering every girl to discover her best self and change the world.
Girl Scouts of Gateway Council is committed to helping all girls make a positive change in their community and our world, regardless of their backgrounds, locations or financial situations.
Under the mentorship and guidance of our staff facilitators, we are
able to provide the Girl Scouting experience to girls and their
families in under-served communities throughout 35 counties of north
Florida with our Community Development troops.
With the support of grant funding, community partners and individual donors, we are able to champion these girls as they pursue their passions and forge their future. By supporting girls and amplifying their voices, we give them a chance to discover a lifetime of self-assurance, adventure and achievement.
