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

21 ED Large HH 960x429

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 >>

The Earth Defenders service project encourages Girl Scouts to choose an environmental issue they are passionate about to support during their project. We love seeing their creativity shine as they help protect the planet. Projects ranged from recycling efforts to hosting clean ups to planting native plants and/or removing harmful, invasive plants. Some troops 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 were 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 of this years projects on our blog >>

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