BigSpeak Speakers Bureau is fostering entrepreneurship in young women after contributing to the Central Coast Girl Scout troop 50886’s cookie sales and distribution. BigSpeak purchased over 500 boxes of cookies. The girls worked with the BigSpeak team to brand the cookies with BigSpeak’s marketing materials, gaining valuable insights into the marketing industry. The cookies will be sent out as tokens of appreciation to BigSpeak clientele.
Girl Scout Troop 50886 includes 35 girls from grades 6 through 12. The troop—made up of Senior Girl Scouts and Cadettes—is focused on leadership, earning badges, and outdoor activities. Recently, the Senior Girl Scouts hiked in the Eastern Sierras/John Muir Wilderness to Evolution Valley and back, a total of 45 miles. This summer, the Senior Girl Scouts will travel to Belize on a seven day trip, which will include a community service project at a local school. The Cadettes will travel to Catalina this summer for a hike and camp out as well.
Troop 50886 also has bimonthly meetings, monthly hikes, and community service projects such as canned food drives and singing holiday carols at retirement homes. They will participate in a weekend campout and skills competition called Kaleidoscope this spring. The proceeds from their cookie sales provide them with the funds to sponsor these opportunities.
BigSpeak is happy to support Troop 50886 in developing their life skills, while also working with them in marketing and distribution.“We are so excited to have the support of Big Speak! By purchasing cookies to send to your clients, you are supporting the leadership and skill building of our troop,” said Troop Leader Katelyn Rodeo.
