The Treats & Keeps Program is an awesome opportunity for your G.I.R.L. ( Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader)™ to enhance her Girl Scout Leadership Experience. Much more than a money-earning activity, the Treats & Keeps Program teaches your Girl Scout skills that will help her grow into a leader and prepare her for the future.

Participating girls will develop skills in financial literacy and learn how to set goals, make individual and group decisions, craft her unique sales pitch, manage troop proceeds and ethically run a business.
