Currently Girl Scouts of Yuma has expanded it's WIFI so it's girls can work from the parking lot on schooling, or Girl Scout activities, but the troop needs more than a good signal to help succeeding in school.

Andrea Frias, a troop leader said some of her girls don't get to participate in virtual meeting because of the lack of technology. Others have to even wait for their parents to get home to get that access.
