Goal Setting: A girl will set nut, chocolate and magazine sales goals individually and, with her team, creates a plan to reach them. She develops cooperation and team building skills all along the way.
Programming focuses on leadership, collaboration and exploring personal values through discovering, connecting and taking action to help girls explore their future potential.
The 5 Skills
The Fall Product Program teaches Girl Scouts 5 core skills to grow into leaders in their own life, in business and in the world.
Decision Making: A girl will help decide how her team spends their nut, chocolate and magazine money, furthering critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Money Management: A girl takes nut, chocolate and magazine orders, handles customers' money, and gains valuable and practical life skills around financial literacy.
People Skills: A girl learns how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling nut, chocolate and magazines. These experiences help her develop healthy relationships and conflict resolution skills that she can use throughout her life.
Business Ethics: A girl will be honest and responsible at every step of the nut, chocolate and magazine sale. Her business ethics reinforce the positive values she is developing as a Girl Scout.
Setting goals is the key to success. Troops and girls who set goals earn big. Talk about what your plans are for the fall and what the funding would be needed to make it happen. Give your girls the opportunity to fully experience Product Programming and don't skip the Goal Setting and Decision Making skill building! By leveraging all product options, the girls can discover, connect and take action to meet their troop's funding needs.
For example, in a troop with 10 girls: If each girl sells 3 magazine orders and 20 nut items, the troop earns $266!
