Council-Wide Community Service

As Girl Scouts we promise to “help people at all times” and “make the world a better place”. What better way to demonstrate our commitment to Girl Scouting than providing community service! Girl Scouts of Southeast Florida provides opportunities for everyone to come together year-round to participate in council-wide community service projects.

Earth Defenders

22 ED Large HH 655x360

Become an Earth Defender this year! We are asking Girl Scouts from across our council to become planetary superheros by choosing an environmental issue they are passionate about to support during their project. We love seeing your creativity shine as you help protect the planet. Projects ranged from recycling efforts to hosting clean ups to planting native plants and/or removing harmful, invasive plants - the possibilities are endless!

Earn the free patch by completing a service project on your own or as a troop that protects the planet between October 1 - 31, 2022. Take photos of your hardwork and submit the online completion form by November 6, 2022 in order to be counted in this years total. Only the first 800 Girl Scouts will recieve the free patch, so get to planning!

There is nothing Girl Scouts cannot do when they put their mind to it!

In the past, troops have teamed up with other organizations to complete their projects including the Loggerhead Marinelife Center, the River Center, and Hugh Taylor Birch State Park. Other connections have been made with organizations like Terracycle, which is a company that provides a recycling service for a variety of different products like crayons, ink cartridges, and juice pouches. Read more about some last year projects on our blog >>

Thank you to everyone who particpated in October 2021! This year we had 570 participants from 72 different troops participate. Each county of our council was represented! View photos of this years projects >>
