Juliette Fall Product Program Series

Juliette’s 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. Juliette’s (and girls waiting for their troop to form) will also earn Juliette Dollars which can be used to fund their Girl Scout activities.
