About the Fall Product Program
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.

Through the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, girls in grades K through 12 are engaged in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. Girls develop leadership potential by participating in age-appropriate activities that enable them to discover their values, skills, and the world around them. Activities in science and technology, business and economic literacy, and outdoor and environmental awareness provide girls with opportunities for fun and friendship while fostering the development of leadership skills and self-esteem.
