Fall Product Program Is Almost Here!

The Fall Product Program provides girls with life skills like goal setting and money management. Help your Girl Scout participate through meaningful activities where she will gain confidence, earn patches and prizes, plus give back through the Care to Share service project.

Check out the Resources and Forms page for more information about the Fall Product Program.

On September 21, 2019, parents will receive a Girl Launch Email with link to UNIFY (QSP/Nut Online Program) where girls can set-up their site, send emails, and even design their own custom patch! Make sure to check back for more updates and information!

Juliette Fall Product Program Series

Girl Scout Independents (Juliettes) can embark on this unique entrepreneurial experience in just a few short steps. Through the Fall Product Program, girls of all ages build self-confidence and develop valuable skills—such as goal setting, money management, and business ethics—while earning badges, patches, and prizes along the way. Juliettes (and girls waiting for their troop to form) will also earn Juliette Dollars which can be used to fund their Girl Scout activities.
