The Mags&Munchies Program
Be Your Best You
Girl Scouts of every level can take part in the GSNC Mags& Munchies Fall Products Program. You can earn money for your Troop while growing Financial Literacy, Business and People Skills that can help you in your daily life. Through Girl Scouts of Nassau County's (GSNC) Mags&Munchies Fall Products Program, Girl Scouts begin to develop life skills which they can use in the years to come. Girls who learn goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics will be poised for success in their personal and professional life.
