5 Key Skills
The Girl Scout Product Sale Programs teach girls five key business and leadership skills.
Girls set sales goals and, with their team, create a plan to reach them. Girls learn how to set and reach goals to succeed in school, on the job, and in life.
Girls decide where and when to sell, how to market their sale, and what to do with their earnings. Girls must make many decisions, big and small, in their lives.
Girls develop a budget, take orders, and handle money - from their lunch money to their allowance to their future paycheck.
Girls learn how to talk and listen to their customers, and learn to work as a team. This helps them do better on group projects, sports teams, and the playground.
Girls act honestly and responsibly during every step of the Product Sale. Employers hire ethical employees - and the world needs ethical leaders.
