Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC)  Fall Products Program - Mags&Munchies

 

 

Welcome to the 2014 Mags&Munchies Fall Products Entrepreneurial Program!

 

Why Participate in the Mags&Munchies Fall Products Program?

GSNC MAgs&Munchies patchesThrough Girl Scouts of Nassau County's (GSNC) Mags&Munchies Fall Products Program, Girl Scouts begin to develop life skills which they can use in the years to come. Girls who learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics will be poised for success in their personal and professional life.

* Goal Setting - Girls learn how to set goals and meet deadlines.

* Decision Making - Girl Scouting teaches girls how to use research to develop a plan and work as a team.

* Money Management - Girls learn to make change, plan and budget their funds.

* People Skills - Girls gain confidence learning how to deal with different types of people.

* Business Ethics - Girl Scouting teaches girls to be honest, trustworthy and reliable.

 

By participating in Girl Scouts of Nassau County's (GSNC) Mags&Munchies Fall Products Program, Your Girl Scout will learn how set goals and strive to achieve them through solid decision making, money management, people skills and good business ethics.

 

 

When your Girl Scout has learned these skills she'll be ready for success in her school, career

and life. When employers interview job candidates (including part time, after school jobs) they

all look for the same things. They want someone who...

             ...is honest, trustworthy and reliable.

             ... works well with others.

             ...can set goals and meet deadlines.

             ...understands customers and can deliver good customer service.

             ...can influence others (leadership qualities).
