Girl Scout Money Earning
Money Earning and Troop Banking
From funding a once-in-lifetime troop trip to demonstrating valuable money management skills in the Girl Scout Cookie Program—our volunteers are the real life role models for our girls when it comes to establishing savvy money smarts!
As a volunteer, here’s what you need to know about Girl Scout money-earning and troop banking.
If you’re planning to earn money as part of a Girl Scout activity or project, you need to submit your money-earning activity for approval four weeks before it takes place.
