Our state has benefited by developing its own LEADS program patterned after LEADS at GFWC. Each club selects member who has not held an office. The Leads candidates from the club are narrowed down again to one from each district. GFWC FL holds a LEADS seminar for these members, with one being selected to attend the GFWC LEADS.
The themed power point presentations made at the 2010 Annual District Meetings can be found under Resources.

GFWC Florida Scholarships
The deadline for applying for the 2016 scholarships for women who need education to obtain employment is March 1, 2017. The applications are on the GFWC Florida website under Resources.
I know that many of our clubs give local scholarships and the state scholarship program provides an opportunity for more women to obtain financial assistance. Together, we can make a difference.
Recently, the following information was printed in The Marketplace. “An estimated 2 million Americans age 60 or older are in debt from unpaid student loans according to data from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. It said the number of aging Americans with outstanding student loans had almost tripled from about 700,000 in 2005.”
Many Florida women will benefit from our help and avoid being part of the above statistics. Please advertise the scholarship opportunities to women in your community as well as any local public Florida college, university, or technical school.
