Final Task Presentation
Transcript of Final Task Presentation
The Hispanic Community is the fastest growing community in the
nation, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.
Researchers have found Girl Scouts embodies many of the
same values that Hispanic parents want to instill in their daughters.
Hispanic mothers, for example, want their daughters to successfully adapt to life in the United States while also staying closely connected to their own cultural heritage and traditions. LEADERSHIP TRAININGS ACTION and Trainings are not the only important part for the development of leadership in adults. A mentor/facilitator also plays an important role during the 9 sessions (troop meetings) that the training lasts, while the leader improves and increases her confidence, and begins to fully take on her role.
In addition, "Punto de Encuentro," is a meeting that occurs once a month in which experiences are shared and new goals are set together. Leaders The Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council have created "Girl Scout Quest," as a program to help Hispanic women to develop their leadership skills and to help them become inspirational models for their daughers.

Women are the most vulnerable sector of the Hispanic population.
There are now over 350.000 Latinas in Girl Scouts. 65% of Latin Women in the US only have an intermediate level of education or lower. 25 million women in the United States are Latin or Hispanic, according to the 2010 census. From the beginnings of the program in 2010, more than a 100 women have engaged in the process of developing their leadership. Some of them have even begun their jurney to becoming a volunteer mentor and to aid in the formation of new leaders.
It is for this reason that I believe that they are the real inspirational leaders, because beyond stereotypes, beliefs, immigration statuses, and language barriers, these women have developed a leadership which impacts their daughters lives, inspires them to develop their full potential, and helps them make of the world a better place. To develop a consistent and standardized process in Hispanic Comunities, GSSJC (Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council) created, customized and traslated outlines, materials and delivery training to Spanish speaking volunteers and parents.
