Scout sales offer job training

Whether it is fall popcorn for Cub Scouts or cookies for Girl Scouts, kids in Door and Kewaunee Counties are getting a lot more out of their experience selling than just money for their local troops. Both scouting organizations use the experience to sharpen their entrepreneurial skills and help them get practical experience as they work towards sales related merit badges. Lee Snodgrass from the Girl Scouts of Northwestern Great Lakes says the program helps members in several ways.

Snodgrass says proceeds stay local as it takes approximately 52,000 boxes of cookies sold to fund its financial assistance program that allows any girl wanting to join the organization to do so.
