Thank you for choosing to volunteer as a Troop Product Manager (TPM)
with the Girl Scouts of Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Twice a year Girl Scouts participate in programs developed by GSUSA
to provide them with opportunities to explore being entrepreneurs.
Girls get a chance to discover what it takes to run a small business
using in-person and online platforms to sell to their friends, family
and community. The Fall Product Program and Girl Scout Cookie Program
provide Girl Scouts with the opportunity to learn by doing. Every step
that they take during these programs help them build skills they can
use for a lifetime. Just like all Girl Scout program girls lead the
way in the product sale programs. What makes the product sale programs
so special is the coordinated effort of adults and girls in your
community coming together to make these experiences possible. Troop
Product Managers are integral to this process as they coordinate and
organize troop sales, record-keeping and money handling, so that every
girl can participate in this national program.
Below are the online training requirements for Cookie/Product
Managers, which only need to be taken once and at any time.
Additional training must be taken by a TPM with their Service Unit
Product Manager (SUPM) prior to the start of each product program in
order to receive access to marketing systems and sales materials. Both
fall and spring product programs have specific deadlines for troops to
have met eligibility requirements in order to participate, which
include online and in-person training. Please contact your SU
volunteer team to get connected with the product manager for your
service unit to receive deadlines and to schedule training.
