The Sweets & Treats Program is a great way for girls to kick start the Girl Scout membership year while helping their troop with much-needed funds for their service projects, adventures, and experiences.
This program is an integral part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, where girls gain experience with the five skills linked to leadership and financial literacy: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. Plus, it prepares girls for the work — and fun! — of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
As an integral part of your Girl Scout journey, you'll learn and develop five key skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills, Business Ethics; earn startup funds for troop activities; and earn exciting rewards & personalized patches!
Whether you participate online individually or with your troop, there are two main methods of selling in Sweets & Treats:
Online sales: you'll invite friends & family to place an order through your personalized link. Nuts, chocolate, magazines, and other items can be shipped directly to customers. Nuts and Chocolates can be delivered by you to your customers. If you're only participating in online sales, no training is required for your grown-up.
In-person sales: You'll take orders using a paper order card and collect payments upfront before placing the order with your volunteer. (If you're selling as an individual and using the paper order card, your grown-up will need to attend training).
Care to Share items will be donated to Soldiers’ Angels. For each $7 donation, veterans and active duty service members, both at home and abroad, will be sent one nut/candy item and you'll earn proceeds as normal.
