The Fall Product Program is instrumental in helping girls develop five key skills:

Goal Setting

Decision Making

Money Management

People Skills

Business Ethics

While the Fall Product Program is not as well known as the Girl Scout Cookie Program, it is just as important to Girl Scouts! Both programs teach girls important skills and help them earn money for troop activities. The proceeds from the Fall Products Program help troops to fund activities and service projects that begin long before the Winter Girl Scout Cookie Program. Girl Scout Product Programs differ from traditional fundraisers by encouraging girls to work together to decide how to spend troop funds rather than dictating what the money will be used towards.
