Fall Product Program

The Fall Product Program is a council-sponsored program that combines educational activities with money earning opportunities for the troops. The Fall Product Program is directed toward family and friends - those closest to Girl Scouting and enables troops to earn startup money by selling magazine subscriptions as well as nuts and candy.

Thank you for your support of the girls, troops and the council by purchasing or participating in the Fall Product Program!

The Fall Product Program is managed in the UNIFY system by Troops and Service Units. It is also the system used by council to order product and rewards. The Service Unit Product Program Manager will be sure the troop is provided login information. Registered girls names will be uploaded prior to the start date. Newly registered girls can be easily added as they join your troop. Use the links below to find instructions on how to use the UNIFY system.

Fall Product Program

Participation in the Fall Product Program provides opportunities for Girl Scouts at all levels to set and achieve goals while earning money for troop activities and other meaningful Girl Scout experiences. Our theme this year is Speak Up /Lead the Way and the mascots are service dogs. We encourage you to discuss with your girls the invaluable role service dogs play in people’s lives. The back page of this book contains some discussion questions specifically for younger girls. What is it your troop wants to do? Perform community service, go camping, earn a Girl Scout Journey, travel and experience a foreign culture? The Fall Product Program can help your troop do all of this while developing five business-building skills they will use throughout their lives: 

1. Goal Setting 

2. Decision Making 

3. Money Management 

4. People Skills 

5. Business Ethics

Care to Share

With our council-wide Care to Share Program, Girl Scouts are able to make a difference in our community by thanking those who already make a difference through our partnership with the Central Virginia USO.

Girls who sell 5 or more items to donate qualify for a special patch.

Participation means the girls do all the selling and the council will take care of collecting and delivering the items to the USO on behalf of all girls who participated.

 

Thanks for your support and participation in the Fall Product Program!
