Treat Yourself Fall Product Program

We are excited about our new name and new look for 2020: The Treat Yourself Fall Product Program combines girl learning with troop earning. Click here for a one-page overview of this integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience.

  • Girls will learn important life skills such as business ethics, money management, people skills, goal setting and decision making.
  • Not only will girls be learning, but they will also be earning money for troop adventures and Take Action projects. 
  • Girls can participate in person, online or both.
  • For the first time, we are partnering with M2 Media and Ashdon Farms to offer magazines, nuts and candy.
  • Girls and adults can create a personal avatar on M2 Media’s fun, easy-to-use website, then earn a patch featuring their personal avatar. Bonus: Each girl can create a video of her avatar (speaking in her voice!) to send to customers. 
  • Troops that participate in the Treat Yourself Fall Product Program gain early access to the cookie booth lottery during Girl Scout Cookie season.

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

Program Benefits

The Treat Yourself Fall Product Program is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Participation provides opportunities for Girl Scouts to set and achieve goals while earning money for troop activities and other meaningful experiences. 

What is it your troop wants to do? Perform community service, go camping, earn a Girl Scout Journey, travel and experience another culture? The Treat Yourself Fall Product Program can help your troop do all of this while girls develop five business-building skills they will use throughout their lives:

  • goal setting 
  • decision making 
  • money management 
  • people skills 
  • business ethics

Care to Share

With our councilwide Care to Share Program, Girl Scouts make a difference by thanking community members who already make a difference. Care to Share participation means the girls do the selling and the council will take care of collecting and delivering the items to the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia on behalf of all girls who participated. Girls who sell five or more items to donate qualify for a special patch.
