This year, the Girls Coordinating Council (GCC), a recent addition to the Broward Children’s Strategic Plan, will produce and release the publication of the Status of Girls and Young Women in Broward County. This report will educate the community about the developmental experiences of girls supported by non-profit programming, as well as showcase the successes of girls and young women. This is a novel project, one that has never been attempted in Broward; it will become the first cumulative report on the health and well-being of Broward girls and young women. The Girls Coordinating Council hopes that by creating this integrated analysis of data, community members will begin to understand the importance of gender-responsive programming and bring awareness to the areas in which girls experience the most difficulty. By clearly displaying both the areas of success and challenges, this report will encourage agencies to review and, if needed, restructure their programming as well as reframing their mindset to more effectively support female achievement.

The findings will be divided into seven domains that play integral roles in shaping the lives of girls and young women: emotional, physical, spiritual, relational, legal, sexual and intellectual. Within each domain, the Girls Coordinating Council wants to highlight the success stories of local girls and young women who have managed to thrive, with the help of community agencies and organizations, and defy the odds set against them. Ultimately, this project is the result of cooperation and support by several local agencies and organizations.

Partnerships between the community and the GCC are invaluable to the furtherance of GCC goals and initiatives. Most importantly, these partnerships are key to bettering the welfare of girls and young women in this county. Through joint efforts, change can be made towards ensuring the health and happiness of girls across Broward.

The Faces of CSC

The greatest tool you can give a child is the ability to persuade and speak with confidence. Being that my YIG experience positively impacted my emotional literacy skills, I would like to pass these on to those who are less fortunate.
