Cookie Program 101

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind. Whether that goal is a pizza party, a community service project, or your first overnight camping trip with your troop, you know how many packages you need to sell to make it happen. 

But did you know that you're also part of a huge business, one that's run by girls just like you all over the country? In fact, you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program for girls In the world. Being a Girl Scout Cookie professional gives you skills essential for success both now and later: 

  Goal Setting

   Decision Making

   Money Management 

   People Skills

   Business Ethics 

Need some help getting started? Check out all the amazing resources on this page that will make it easy to sell more packages of cookies this year than you ever thought possible!
