NUTS about Girl Scouts

QSP, QSP, QSP! QSP is an easy way for your girls to earn a little start up money for your troop. It is timed to coincide with the beginning of the new Girl Scout year and it is easy to do. There is no door to door involved, just ask your friends and family. Easy as that. The trainings are being held now and if you are a leader or service unit coordinator be sure to check them out. I personally, cannot wait to try ALL the yummy nut combos and maybe even get some magazines. If you have questions on anything involving QSP be sure to call your local office and we will be glad to help you out.

2012 Fall Product Program
October 8 - November 4, 2012
Magazines delivered 6-12 weeks
The 2012 Fall Product Program is a council-sponsored money-earning opportunity that enables Girl Scout troops to earn funds at the beginning of the Girl Scout year. Participation is voluntary.
The theme of this year's sale is What Can a Girl Do? Get Connected! Keeping girls connected for over a century, Girl Scouts has encouraged girls to stay connected – to family, friends, community and the world.
The Fall Product Program is an integral part of a Girl Scout's journey toward leadership development. Through this program girls develop five business skills used throughout their adult life: Goal-Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics!
Participation is easy!
