Impact Statement

Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida inspired the lives of 6,500 girls in the 2015 membership year. Girls in grades K through 12, throughout ten counties in southwest Florida, experienced Girl Scouting through troops, events, series, and camp activities, and as individual members. They met in a variety of locations, with caring adult volunteers mentoring girls to find their voice and support their leadership journey. 

While the majority of our members participate in troops, we are proud to offer outreach programming to local schools, afterschool programs, summer camps, and community centers.  Examples from the past year include a partnerships with the Boys and Girls Clubs in Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte Counties; Catholic Charities in DeSoto County; the Hardee County YMCA; and the Heights Foundation in Lee County .  

 

It is our promise that the opportunity of Girl Scouting is available to all girls. With approximately 21% of our Girl Scouts receiving financial assistance from the Promise Fund, which is funded in part by assistance from civic groups, United Ways, grants, foundations, and private donations, we ensure that Girl Scouting is an inclusive and welcoming sisterhood. In communities where girls experience high financial need, we offer Girl Scout Community Troops with additional financial support and staff oversight. Our generous donors ensured 461 Girl Scouts in 22 Community Troops in Sarasota, Manatee, Lee, Hendry, and Collier Counties had the same experience offered in traditional troops.  This represents an increase of 31% in Community Troop participants over the previous membership year, and that number continues to grow.

Results of the annual council-wide Spring Troop Survey clearly illustrate the benefits of Girl Scouting to our members and their communities.  The survey shows that:

80.2% of our Girl Scouts have developed a strong sense of self;

76.2% have developed positive values;

71.1% seek challenges;

64.3% have become resourceful problem solvers; and 

80.5% feel empowered to make a difference in the world.

Participant satisfaction is also high.  Seventy-six percent of respondents rated their Girl Scout experience as a 5 out of 5.  Seventeen percent rated their experience as 4 out of 5.  Eighty-five percent said they planned to participate in Girl Scouting again next year.

Background Statement

Founded in 1912, Girl Scouts of the USA is the preeminent leadership development organization for girls with 3.2 million girl and adult members worldwide. Girl Scout programs were first established In Gulfcoast Florida in the mid-1920s. In 1962, the Caloosa Girl Scout Council, made up of Lee, Collier and one-half of Hendry Counties, merged with the Gulfside Council (Manatee and Sarasota Counties) and incorporated independent troops in Charlotte County and DeSoto County, to form the Gulfcoast Council. The Council’s name was changed to Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Inc. in 1993, with expansion to cover 10 counties and nearly 10,000 square miles.


As the leading authority on girls' healthy growth and development, Girl Scouts provides the premier leadership development program for girls in grades K-12, inspiring them to achieve personal and academic success now while preparing for the careers or life journeys they choose in the future. Our goal is to ensure girls cultivate leadership skills as they discover who they are, connect with others, and take action to identify and solve problems, making their communities and the world a better place.

 

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is delivered through a national program portfolio consisting of “Journeys,” which are project-based, multidisciplinary learning adventures that help girls team up to identify and solve problems in their communities. Girls try new things and develop specific skills, from camping and first aid to financial literacy and STEM, while earning program awards and badges. The Girl Scout Leadership Experience curriculum is correlated to national and state learning standards, so educators and parents can be confident that girls are having fun, active experiences that reinforce what they are learning during the school day.

 

Girl Scouting is set apart from other youth development programs by its unique program model, incorporating the three Girl Scout Processes:

 

1. Girl-Led–From the youngest ages, girls have the opportunity to make decisions and shape their own experiences.

2. Learning-by-Doing–Girls get to do hands-on, experiential activities that engage them in continuous cycles of action and reflection.

3. Cooperative Learning–Girls team up on projects so that everyone learns in an atmosphere of respect and cooperation.

 

Thirty-two full-time employees and approximately ten part-time/seasonal employees support the Girl Scout Leadership Experience in a variety of positions including program, volunteer, and membership development. Girl Scouts of the USA provides us with resources, information, consultation, curricula, and program/outcome research. Through collaborations with local organizations, Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida offers a wide variety of experiences to a broad audience of girls.

Statement from the Board Chair/Board President


Statement from the CEO/Executive Director
When I think about future generations and the knowledge and skills that girls will need to be successful, I think about the characteristics of courage, confidence and character. Values--like honesty, consideration, caring, responsibility, respect--have meaning in one's own life, and in the life of one's family, community, and world. I see girls as eager kindergartners, inquisitive middle schoolers, and critically thinking high school seniors who can identify a community need and propose a solution. I see girls working together, learning through hands-on experiences, and leading by example in a future society where there will be gender balance. I am reassured and confident that the next generation will be rich with Girl Scout “alumnae.”
 
Girls matter. Imagine a new generation of leaders: girls and women who lead in new ways, through communication, collaboration and taking action to make the world a better place. These are already today’s Girl Scouts, making a difference in our ten-county region every day.  I believe that the Girl Scout Leadership Experience is unique and distinct from other youth programs in two significant ways. Girls in grades K -12 are inspired by local, quality, diverse and passionate adult volunteers (leaders behind the leaders) who coach, mentor, and support each girl to be her best. Through multiple “pathways” of participation (troop, series, event, travel, virtual and outdoor environmental leadership pathways) girls have fun - using nationally consistent, relevant and developmentally appropriate programming established by the Girl Scout Research Institute. All girls are afforded leadership opportunities and in return, are expected to give service to family, community, and the world.
 
Girl Scouts says “yes” to every girl—we break the leadership barrier for girls of all backgrounds. Our membership reflects the rich diversity of our country.
 
Perhaps you had a meaningful Girl Scout experience, or know a woman who did. It is estimated that 50 million women living today where in Girl Scouting. Women who are now heads of households, education, government, and business. Women who had someone who believed in them.
 
I believe that all girls can and should have meaningful life experiences, to learn from other girls and adult role models in our community. And as individuals and as a community, we need to focus on creating this new generation of leaders for girls and boys. Girl Scouts--the right time and the right place, for our community to place its trust and support in our mission--girls.
 

 --Susan Stewart, CEO

Programs
Description

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is the premier leadership development program for girls in grades K-12. The goal is to ensure girls develop leadership skills as they discover  who they are, connect with others, and take action to identify and solve problems, making their communities and the world a better place. This is accomplished through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience curriculum, a nationally recognized program portfolio including books, awards, activities, and resource materials designed specifically to appeal to girls.

 

The Girl Scout Leadership Experience is offered through various participation opportunities, or “pathways,” which are delivered primarily by adult volunteers with training and support from Girl Scouts staff. These include: troops, series, camp/environmental leadership, events, and travel. Though the majority of members participate in troops, a girl may participate in as many pathways as desired, individualizing her experience to match her interests.

Short Term Success
Girls can earn badges and awards for specific achievements appropriate to their Girl Scout grade level (Daisy, Brownie, Junior, Cadette, Senior, and Ambassador), by completing activities in the Journey books and Girls Guide to Girl Scouting.  Journeys include three sets for each Girl Scout grade level, themed: “It's Your Story, Tell It!”, “It's Your World, Change It!”, and “It's Your Planet, Love It!”
Long Term Success

Intermediate outcomes related to the Girl Scout Leadership Experience measure how girls discover themselves and their values, connect with others, and take action to improve their communities and the world.  There are fifteen specific, measurable outcomes in all.  Examples include developing a strong sense of self, learning how to resolve conflicts, and identifying community needs.

 

Ultimately, girls will achieve long-term success when they have developed the capacity to lead with courage, confidence, and character to make the world a better place. 

Program Success Monitoring

To ensure the efficacy of our programs, we administer professionally developed, confidential annual surveys with grade-appropriate outcome questions (two – five questions per outcome). All experiences in Girl Scouting incorporate the discover, connect, and take action keys to leadership:

Discover – Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.

Connect – Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.

Take Action – Girls act to make the world a better place.

There are fifteen outcomes in all (five per leadership key). Our outcomes achievement data is used both locally and nationally to inform volunteer training, identify opportunities for improvement, and determine where additional focus, funds, and energy should be invested.

Program Success Examples

High school senior Grace W. recently completed her Girl Scout Gold Award project, "SPARCC Change: Eliminating Violence through Advocacy and Martial Arts.” Grace actively engaged in promoting social change, encompassing advocacy, self-defense training, and support for abuse survivors. She established “Respect Week” at her school, reaching more than 2,000 students with a variety of anti-violence activities, creative messaging, and support presentations. Grace also launched a self-defense martial arts program at her school called “Kickin’” and led a drive to collect more than $2,500 worth of items for SPARCC (Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center), an abuse and sexual violence awareness and prevention organization.

 

"I see myself continuing to fight for change, despite obstacles, despite setbacks, despite trials and tribulations. I have become more of a go-getter because of this project, and I am ready to start more movements, make more waves, and help more people in whatever way I can."

Description

 

Because there are so many girls who are unable to access troops due to financial and transportation barriers, we take the Girl Scout Leadership Experience to the girls—at their school, to an after-school program, or at a Girl Scout House—through our Community Troops program.  Funding provides individual troops with the ability to meet, like a traditional troop, once a week to participate in activities using the Journeys curriculum. Community Troops impact the lives of girls of all ethnicities, from low-income, multicultural, underserved communities. Girls in Community Troops need assistance to purchase program supplies and curriculum books, patches, and badges, as well as fees for membership, field trips, and other special programs. Our publicly supported Community Troops are designed to empower girls to gain practical life skills, promote cooperation and team building, and make a difference in their neighborhoods, the community, and the world.

Program Success Examples

Regine has been involved in Girl Scouts for 8 years. She was honored as the 2015 Outstanding Philanthropic Youth by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. She also received the highest achievement in Girl Scouting - the Gold Award - for her take-action project, “Hygiene for Haiti”.

“Girl Scouts is a major reason I have become such a determined and ambitious young lady! From setting and meeting my cookie sales goals to leading my own service project, my Girl Scout experience has opened my eyes to a plethora of issues going on around me. I have transformed into a more compassionate individual and my passion for community service has grown tremendously.

I have gained the confidence that I need to take initiative, speak for those who need help, and make a difference in my community. Girl Scouts has truly shown me how capable I am of influencing the lives of those around me and I know my life will continue to be positively impacted by such an uplifting organization!”

Description

Many girls participating in Girl Scouts require some level of subsidy when families cannot afford program books and supplies, as well as fees for membership, outdoor environmental leadership programs, and travel opportunities. We are very proud that we are able to offer program opportunities to all girls, particularly at-risk girls and those living in economically depressed, underserved areas.

 

Financial assistance provides support for membership fees, uniforms, and program curriculum materials for girls participating in traditional troops and Community Troops; program fees for outdoor environmental leadership opportunities such as resident and day camp, events and series, and programs with a STEM focus; and participation in local, national, and international travel, including national leadership conferences. In addition, the Elinor Crawford College Scholarship Fund presents one-time college scholarships of up to 1,000 per girl each spring, through a competitive process.

Program Success Examples

When I think about how scholarships have helped girls in our community, I think of two families in particular. Both have multiple girls and the expense for all to participate would have taken a toll on the families’ wallets. The moms have expressed to me what a huge help it was to not have to pay for anything.

One is a single mom raising three girls. From the day they joined, all of the girls have been eager to try new things. They want to be involved in their community, and they work hard to raise money so they will have the chance to do things that would normally not be available to them. I am so happy that all three of them were able to join.

The other family, also with three girls, has medical and financial issues. We have seen the girls come out of their shells and enjoy the time they spend with the other girls. They are learning things that I don't think they would have the opportunity to learn if they had not joined Girl Scouts.

-- Girl Scout Volunteer, Hendry County

Collaborations

By its very nature, Girl Scouting is a collaborative program that relies on other nonprofit groups, schools, civic/community organizations, and corporations to help provide girls with meaningful programs and quality volunteers.  Through cooperation with other youth-serving agencies, we are able to reach out to the girls who need us.  Offering our programs at sites where girls gather enables the participation of at-risk girls, as most do not have transportation to extra-curricular activities that occur on nights and weekends.  Many collaborating agencies generously donate programming space and aid in marketing our programs to their clients.  Others assist by offering free or reduced-price activities, or community service opportunities, to Girl Scout troops.

 
We have engaged in collaborations with more than 150 businesses, organizations, schools, and school boards across the 10 counties we serve.  Examples include Boys & Girls Clubs, New College of Florida, National Organization of Women, Ringling College of Art and Design, UN Women, Girls Inc., Pace Center for Girls, Edison State College, Catholic Charities, Junior Achievement, YMCA, American Red Cross - Lee County Chapter, FGCU, Naples Zoo, Ronald McDonald House, Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, and many more.
