2017 POPCORN SALE INFORMATION
It’s not too early to be preparing for your popcorn sales! Now is the time to be recruiting your popcorn kernels or popcorn team. The more individuals your unit has invested in popcorn the better the communications are going to be from the leader down to every Scout. It also makes the work load more manageable and individuals are more likely to step up and help out so start recruiting.
If your unit is not participating then you are doing a great injustice to your unit and Scouts. Let’s all truly make this year’s sale an extension of the Scouting program and let’s teach them how to be prepared, courage to approach an adult and make an ask, how to tailor their communication skills to turn a not sale into a yes!
Please take time to view these helpful You Tube Training Videos about Selling Popcorn from the parent/leader perspective as well as from a Scout perspective. The popcorn sale is a way to encourage those young men to have financial accountability for their program and earn their way! What better opportunity to help them prepare for the future.
