If you missed the council kickoff, every unit received a unit funding kit. Check out this short video on what was provided. Please contact your Unit Serving Executive if you need additional materials or if you did not receive your kit.
Team Building & Planning
The popcorn sale is too big for one person, consider spreading the work amongst a team (sales, administration, motivation) for shared ideas and shared efforts. Plan the sale like a business.
Take your sales to the top, by having a unit and Scout goal. Break down that goal into achievable expectations of time and effort for each Scout. The goal has to be achievable in the eyes of the Scout family.
