Hear Applause! ME…An Entrepreneur? @ Girl Scout Learning Center, Colfax
Jan 20 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Are you looking for exciting, interactive and worthwhile experiences for your Girl Scouts during student holidays or staff development days? Well, here’s an answer to your dilemma! These activity sessions will have your Girl Scout learning and laughing and leaping ahead with new ideas about money and personal power, while also helping her to fulfill different badges and/or awards requirements! Session price include snacks and lunch.

*ME… An Entrepreneur? Participants will be grouped with like-minded girls as they decide on a business and then follow a step-by-step process to develop this business. This will include a vision and mission statement, logo, target market, budget, marketing plan, etc. Girls will then present their model business for discussion and feedback – similar to the TV show Shark Tank! This dove-tales nicely with the timing of the Girl Scout Cookie Program! Perhaps the girls will come up with interesting and unique ideas for the Walk-About Week and cookie booths!
