Five Essential Skills

Through the Girl Scout Product Sales Programs, girls develop five essential skills they can use in everyday life:

Goal Setting

Girl Scouts set goals individually and with a team, using a plan to reach them, developing Cooperation and Team Building skills along the way

Decision Making

Girl Scouts can decide how their team will spend their money, furthering their Critical Thinking and Problem Solving skills that will help them in many aspects of their lives

Money Management

Girl Scouts take orders, handle customers' money, and gain valuable and Practical Life Skills around financial literacy.

People Skills

Girl Scouts learn how to talk to, listen to, and work with all kinds of people. These experiences help them develop Healthy Relationship and Conflict Resolution skills they can use throughout their life.

Business Ethics

Girl Scouts are honest and responsible every step of the way. Their business ethics reinforce the Positive Values they are developing as Girl Scouts.
