FLVS Girl Scout Raises Awareness for Diapers

Not your average teen, a recent Florida Virtual School (FLVS) student and Girl Scout set out to help babies in poverty in her local community of Naples. When she found out babies often don’t have clean diapers due to financial challenges, she researched the need, interviewed a local childcare center director, and created a video booklet to raise awareness about the problem. She wrote the booklet using the pseudonym “Cadette.”

“It’s disappointing and sad if you don’t have diapers for your baby.  If you don’t have enough money, I wouldn’t say it’s your fault,” Cadette said.  As an independent Girl Scout with Girl Scouts of Gulfcoast Florida, Cadette is organizing a diaper drive for needy families in Southwest Florida. She knows stretching the time between diaper changes can cause infections. Cadette is working toward the Girl Scout Silver Award, given to those who implement a sustainable project to help the local community.  Each Silver Award project is expected to take 50 hours to complete and make a lasting impact.
