Volunteers Nuts Activities
The annual Girl Scout Nut & Candy sale provides our girls with the opportunity to earn start-up funds for the new Girl Scout membership year. All nut proceeds stay right here in Southern Nevada. Girls earn funds for their activities and community projects, while the council's proceeds support events, programs, volunteer training, camps and facilities, plus the financial assistance that keeps Girl Scouting available and affordable for all.
Girls learn life-skills such as:
- Responsibility through gathering orders and turning in information on time.
- Communication skills through talking to customers about the peanuts and how the funds will be used.
- Financial and math skills through adding orders, making change and tracking money.
- Entrepreneurial skills through creating new ways to sell and distribute nuts.
- Self-reliance/self-confidence by overcoming shyness, learning to talk to others, setting and achieving group and personal goals, and discovering new strengths.
- Teamwork by working with others for the benefit of all.
- Goal-setting and planningthrough having a framework for meeting goals.
- Honesty and integritythrough using a meaningful set of values, The Girl Scout Promise and Law, to guide their actions.
