For Cookie Sellers

When you participate in the cookie sale, you become an integral part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world. The Girl Scout Cookie Program is designed to teach girls 5 important skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, Business Ethics, and People Skills. With Digital Cookie, Cookie Finder, booths, house parties, and good old-fashioned door-to-door selling, there is an opportunity for every girl to channel her inner G.I.R.L (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-Taker, Leader) and make the most of all the Cookie Program has to offer.
