Fall Product Volunteers

Troops have an opportunity to get a head start in funding the troop with startup money for activities, supplies and more. What great holiday and teacher gifts these items will make too!

How Does My Troop Get Started? Start by talking to your troop helpers and finding a volunteer willing to be the troop's Fall Product Manager. You and the Fall Product Manager should then register and attend one of the Troop Fall Product Manager Trainings on gsLearn, to learn all about how to manage your Troop's Fall Product Program.
