Girl Scouts of West Central Florida serves nearly 20,000 girls in grades K-12 and nearly 8,500 adults annually in Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Marion, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sumter counties. In partnership with committed adults, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives - like strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. Girl Scouting helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills and cooperation with others.
