The 2012 GSSI Fall Product Program has ended. Special thanks to everyone for continuing to support Girl Scouts in southern Illinois and nationwide.
During GSSI’s Fall Product Program, Girl Scouts sell nuts, candy and magazines to friends, family and neighbors during the Fall Product Program. Girl Scouts will help raise funds for their troop and learn important financial and business skills!
During the Fall Product Program, girls learn five essential skills that will help them grow into leaders in their own lives, leaders in business and leaders in the world.
Goal Setting: Girls set product sale goals and, with their troop, create a plan to reach them. This matters because girls need to know how to set and reach goals to success in school, on the job and in life.
Decision Making: Girls decide where and when to sell products, how to market their sale and what to do with their earnings. This matters because girls must make many decisions, big and small, in their lives. Learning this skill helps them make good ones.
Money Management: Girls develop a budget, take product orders and handle customers’ money. This matters because girls need to know how to handle money – from their lunch money to their allowance to (someday) their paycheck.
People Skills: Girls learn how to talk (and listen) to their customers, as well as learning how to work as a team with other girls. This matters because it helps them do better in school (on group projects, on sports teams and on the playground) and, later, at work.
Business Ethics: Girls act honestly and responsibly during every step of the fall product sale. This matters because employers want to hire ethical employees- and the world needs ethical leaders in every field.
