Popcorn

Every Scout should learn the value of hard work and earning their own way. The popcorn sale is the perfect opportunity to teach this valuable life lesson and fund the most exciting year of Scouting ever. Over 70% of the popcorn sale supports your programs and local Scouting! 

Scouts gain confidence, salesmanship, communication skills, and a sense of accomplishment. The popcorn sale is not just about selling popcorn; it’s also about promoting Scouting and the Scouting ideals!

As the new popcorn season approaches, the Atlanta Area Council Product Sales Committee invites you to the 2024 popcorn sale kickoff. During this event, we will cover updates to the Trail’s End leader portal, Trail’s End App, key dates, and much more.

Attending an Atlanta Area Council Popcorn Kick-Off is required to earn the bonus commission. If your unit attended the VIPS on May 18th,  you do not need to participate in another popcorn kickoff.

Meeting Time: 9:00AM – 10:45 AM

New kernels are encouraged to stay for the new kernel training from 11:00 AM to Noon. Please note, this training is only available on July 13th.

Join us at the Volunteer Service Center, located at 1800 Circle 75 Parkway SE, Atlanta.

There will be two dates to choose from – July 13th or July 20th. If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can send a unit representative. This is an in-person meeting, no zoom option.
