Youth Development

Girl Scouts of America
In Girl Scouts, girls discover the fun, friendship, and power of girls together. Through enriching experiences, such as field trips, sports skill-building clinics, community service projects, cultural exchanges, and environmental stewardships, girls grow and develop to their full potential.

Step Up For Students
Step Up For Students provides scholarships for low-income students in grades K-12. The program, which administers the Florida Tax Credit Program, empowers families to choose the school that best meets their child’s needs. Families have two options to choose from: a scholarship to help cover private school tuition and fees, or a scholarship to assist with transportation costs to attend a public school in another county. To be eligible, a student’s household income must qualify for the free or reduced-price school lunch program (185 percent of the federal poverty guidelines). Children who are in foster care or who are homeless may also be eligible.
