Money Earning Activities
The cool thing about working on money- earning projects is that girls will build skills in budgeting, goal setting, marketing, and working with customers. These are good business practices girls have forever!
- Participate in the Girl Scout Cookie program
- Organize a car wash
- Care for pets
- Collect aluminum cans
There are many ways to earn your travel funds, but don't forget the travel committee must approve all projects. And always check before requesting funds from local organizations, foundations, or businesses. Imagine if they gave you $50 when your council could have received $5,000 if you had coordinated the request? Financial assistance may be available.
