Fall Product Program

Everyone knows Girl Scout Cookies are sold in the winter, but did you know Girl Scouts also sell goodies in the fall?

Our Fall Product Program gives troops a chance to earn startup money for the new membership year without having to wait until cookie time in the winter. They can use the funds they earn to enjoy new and exciting opportunities right away!


100% Online Sale

100% Online

This "Family and Friends" sale is conducted 100% online through a secure program.

Girls get to experience running their first online business without having to sort and deliver product! Friends and family place their order, and it ships directly to their home! 

Girls can click the Unify button below to sign up to participate.

 


Skills

5 Skills for Girls

The Fall Product Program helps girls learn and develop skills that last a lifetime - helping them SPEAK UP and LEAD the WAY in the world around them. By participating in the program, girls have the chance to help fund troop activities, community service projects, and even books and uniforms.

The Fall Product Program provides an important ingredient for girl leadership by developing five skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
