Your troop’s participation in the Treats & Keeps Program is an integral component of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience. By engaging in this month-long program, girls will learn five essential life skills, including financial literacy, goal setting, decision making, business marketing and entrepreneurship.
Treats & Keeps Program is a great opportunity for all the go-getters in your troop to earn money to kick-off the Girl Scout year. Troop proceeds can be used on materials, events, outings and adventures...whatever the troop chooses.
Imagine if... EACH GIRL in a troop of 8 sells 3 magazines AND sells 30 chocolate/nut items, the troop would earn more than $400 in proceeds! PLUS each girl would earn program patches in addition to the cumulative girl rewards offered at each level.
