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 + Girl Delivery

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

Girls get to experience running their first online business by taking all payments online, but customers will have an option to choose whether they will have product delivery directly to their home or a girl will deliver to their home.  If a customer orders online to have delivered directly to their homes they can order any item available online.  If a customer chooses girl delivery they will have a limited number of items to choose from. Please refer to the FAQ.

Girls can click the M2 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-teaching them to TRUST YOUR STRENGTHS while you BRAVELY BE YOU! 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.
