What Can a Girl Do?

Amazing Things!

I’ll Show You How…
The Girl Scout Product Sales Program is made up of two distinct Programs – The Fall Product Sale and The Cookie Sale. These programs enableGirl Scouts around the country to venture into the entrepreneurial world to learn essential business and financial skills, as well as earn money to fund their Girl Scouting goals and improve their communities. The Fall Product Sales Program is an annual sale of nuts, candies, and magazines that runs at the beginning of the new membership year. The Cookie Program is the annual sale of 7 types of delicious Girl Scout Cookies.

5 Skills Girls Learn from Product Sales
Goal Setting: Girls set sales goals and, with their team, create a plan to reach them. Setting and reaching goals teaches success for school, the job, in life.
 Decision Making: Girls decide where and when to sell, how to market their sale, and what to do with their earnings. This paves the way for making big and small decisions in their lives.
Money Management: Girls develop a budget, take orders, and handle customers’ money. Girls need to know how to handle money—from lunch money to allowance to (someday) their paycheck!
People Skills: Girls learn how to talk (and listen!) to their customers. They learn to work as a team—a skill they will need for school, group projects, in sports, on the playground and, later, at work.
Business Ethics: Girls act honestly and responsibly during every step of the sale. This matters because employers want to hire ethical employees—and the world needs ethical leaders in every field.
