Girl Scout Product Sales activities are a valuable part of our Financial
Literacy and Entrepreneurship Program.
Today’s Girl Scouts know what they want. They take action to meet
challenges, connect with others and achieve goals. The product sales programs embrace that
“can-do” attitude as girls set goals, make decisions, learn about themselves
and exceed even their own expectations.
Girls learn business skills including budgeting, financial responsibility,
banking practices, creating a business plan, tracking sales progress, marketing, and
partnering with other girls and adults as they plan for using their proceeds to enhance
their opportunities and experiences through Girl Scouting.
Girls learn life skills including project planning and implementation,
goal-setting, teamwork, public speaking, self-confidence, community awareness, and
partnering with businesses and organizations to serve others.
Mountains to Midlands offers two hands-on product sale learning
experiences. Each fall season, nuts, candies, magazine subscriptions and music
selections are available through our partnership with Ashdon Farms and QSP/Readers’
Digest. This year’s activities will help girls learn to Investigate.
