You have the power to choose what you buy, and every fair trade purchase makes an impact on a person, a community, and a landscape. Making the choice to purchase conscientiously is what it means to #LiveLifeFair.

Girls will explore what it means to #LiveLifeFair through an age-appropriate, interactive scavenger hunt of our fair trade products and a closer look at the lives of the artisans and farmers who create them.

#LiveLifeFair programs run approximately 1½ hours and are typically scheduled Thursday–Saturday, January–October. (We also try to offer programming on weekday school holidays that coincide with the Shawnee Mission School District calendar.)

Girls will receive an adorable patch and a sample of fair trade chocolate!

If your troop is working on their Cadette Savvy Shopper badge or Senior Textile Artist badge please let us know when you register. We can adapt the workshop to help you complete some steps in those badges.

Cost: #LiveLifeFair is offered at no cost but a deposit of $25 is required to schedule your workshop. This deposit will be refunded after the workshop. No-shows and cancellations will not receive a refund.

Additional Information: We can accommodate a maximum of 15 Girl Scouts in a group. Larger troops are welcome to schedule more than one workshop for their troop.

*Your girls #LiveLifeFair date will be confirmed upon receipt of a $25 refundable deposit. $25 deposit will be refunded upon completion of your girls #LiveLifeFair program on the confirmed date and time or if notification of cancellation is received a minimum of 14 days in advance of the confirmed date and time.
