Task Forces

In 2001, Girl Scouts of the USA, our National organization launched an ambitious initiative - Girl Scouting: For Every Girl, Everywhere - to focus and concentrate efforts to reach girls and adults from populations that were underrepresented in Girl Scouting. As a result of this initiative, Girl Scouts of Nassau County began to form task forces. We currently have two task forces – Hispanic Latino Task Force and UMOJA Alliance.

The Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) Hispanic Latino Task Force started in July 2002 with the goal of the of engaging Latina Girls in Girl Scouting and to educate all girls about Latino culture and heritage.

UMOJA Alliance

The Girl Scouts of Nassau County UMOJA Alliance started in 2007 with the goal of presenting a cross cultural alliance for unifying the African Diaspora by developing leadership, courage, confidence and character in girls through building pride in Black Heritage, connecting Long Island communities and mobilizing support. The UMOJA Alliance provides inspiring and empowering programs to hundreds of girls of all ethnic backgrounds, offering fun and educational cultural events. UMOJA has built adult support to improve the quality of life for our girls and to enhance their cultural values. UMOJA is building on the Girl Scout foundation by investing in our girls and teaching them civic responsibility.
