Fall Product Program

Gaining financial literacy and understanding the ins and outs of entrepreneurship is an important goal of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience for every Girl Scout. By participating in the Fall Product Program, she’ll be closer to reaching that goal! Girls learn how to think from a business perspective and manage money while building social skills.

Fall Product Program in a Nutshell

Girl Scouts ask friends and family (either online or in person) to purchase candy, nuts, and discounted magazine subscriptions.
Girls learn five life skills: goal setting, money management, decision making, business ethics, and people skills.
Troops earn start-up money for their programs and activities.
Council programming is funded.
The 2016 season runs from October 1 through December 4.
Fall Product order-taking starts soon – don't miss out! Need help finding a Girl Scout to take your order? Call 757-547-4405 or email us here.
