How we implement Girl Scout Community Troops
Our Girl Scout Community Troops program is led by led by volunteers and Girl Scout Council Staff through both weekly after-school meetings at community centers, parks or schools and also some weekend activities. Girls take part in engaging, challenging, and fun activities like earning badges, traveling, selling cookies, exploring science, getting outdoors, and doing community service projects - all part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.
Benefits for girls who participate
Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida believes that all girls deserve the opportunity to develop into tomorrow’s leaders. When girls participate in Girl Scouts they benefit in 5 important ways:
- They develop a strong sense of self
- They display positive values
- They seek challenges and learn from setbacks
- They form and maintain healthy relationships
- They learn to identify and solve problems in their community
