Welcome to the world of business done Girl Scout style! As "business owners," girls will learn how to launch their own cookie enterprises that help them reach their goals. Jumpstart your cookie season with Cookie University! It's a great place to learn early business skills and the proven strategies that boost sales. This year’s event has been expanded to include sessions for girls of every level.
During this year's cookie season, girls will learn firsthand the ins and outs of running their own cookie business. Cookie U is a fun way to prepare for this adventure. Girls can attend a variety of 30-minute interactive sessions taught by "cookie experts" and discover ideas that put them in business for the future.
Topics include winning selling and marketing strategies, the Gift of Caring Program, cookie booth decorating ideas, goal setting, and a look at this year’s cookie variety line-up and technology tools.
Plus, all sessions include activities from the 2010-11 Cookie Activity Kits, with several activities that help fulfill requirements for Girl Scout badges!
Hey - teen Girl Scouts - you have the experience and know-how to turn cookies into a business that will take you places. Your Cookie U sessions will help you take your plans to the next level and turn you into a Cookie Entrepreneur Officer- CEO!
