Fall Product Program Resources

Welcome to the 2018 fall product program! Troops and IRMs can earn startup funds to use all year long for uniforms and supplies, and to fund their activities and community projects. Girls also earn fun patches along the way.

Training

Be sure to attend your monthly service unit meetings to stay up-to-date on upcoming trainings. Most in-person trainings are held in August or September. If you'd like to know more about our online troop fall manager training, complete the interest form.

If your troop isn’t participating, but your Girl Scout is interested, she can participate as an Individually Registered Member (IRM) and it will not affect her registration in the troop. Complete the interest form for additional information.
