Tropical Florida and Dominican Republic:
Skyrocketing Self-Esteem

Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida and their Girl Guide sisters living in the Dominican Republic are helping girls build their self-esteem and leadership skills, while discovering new opportunities for public service.

The girls are using uniquely ME! The Dove/Girl Scout Self-Esteem Program to help their peers discover their values and talents and to develop the skills necessary to achieve good physical and emotional health.

Building Girls and a World Filled with Courage, Confidence, and Character
A Facebook page was created by the girls, where they posted the uniquely ME! curriculum. Materials were translated into Spanish, and the Girl Guides put together a CD with uniquely ME! resources that is now being used to empower, educate, and inspire girls in the Dominican Republic.

Meeting and Moving Forward
The girls communicate regularly via Facebook, and girl members of the Tropical Florida council are planning to travel to the Dominican Republic and work with their Girl Guide sisters on a joint community service project.
