Volunteers Needed for Hispanic Leadership Fund Project!


Girl Scouts of Nassau County was recently awarded a grant from GSUSA, the Hispanic Leadership Fund Project with an implementation period of June 1, 2013 through May 31, 2014. The goal of the Hispanic Leadership Fund Project is to introduce Hispanic middle school girls to Girl Scouting through Programming that will include a mixture of one day events and Series programs that encourage them to explore their leadership potential and provides them with opportunities to make a difference in their communities. Our goal is to reach 300 Hispanic middle school aged girls, that are not currently Girl Scout members and to keep them engaged by offering further opportunities to participate in Girl Scouting through traditional Troops, Series Programs, and Camp.


In order to achieve this important goal we need the help of at least 25 Adult Volunteers, specifically from the Hispanic community that are not currently Girl Scout members. We are seeking college students (must be minimum of 18 years old), professional Hispanic women, mothers and other family members and community partners. We do not expect you to deliver the Girl Scout series pathway on your own; you will receive training, support and direct assistance delivering programs from Girl Scouts of Nassau County staff.

Growing up “girl” has become increasingly more difficult in today’s pop culture world of media and technology. Whether it is the hierarchy of the middle school cafeteria, the disdainful glances from the power wielding popular kids, distorted body image, sexting or cyberbullying today’s girls are experiencing stress and distress in managing their daily lives; often giving up on their authentic selves.

The Critical Issues Committee is looking for members who can speak to groups on the issues girls are facing, assist in developing programs and materials, work with girls, and research other Critical Issues topics.
