The Girl Scout Cookie Program has grown into a leading business and economic literacy program that is run by and for girls. The Girl Scout Cookie Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics.
Your most important function in preparing for the Girl Scout Cookie Program will be the time you spend with your Girl Scout. Through the cookie program, even the youngest Girl Scouts gain self-confidence and poise by learning how to greet customers and offer cookies for purchase.
A direct sale format provides your Girl Scout with more opportunities in sales and troop profit. Girls earn Cookie Dough and recognitions throughout the entire program, including during cookie booths. This means that girls will earn more Cookie Dough and recognitions and parents/guardians will save lots of time—only one transaction is required when girls have cookies in-hand! Returning to customers’ homes after an order has been placed is now a thing of the past.
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is a great responsibility – it could not happen without you. We are confident you will find the experience to be both enjoyable and rewarding. Thank you for your support and dedication to the success of the program.
