 Girl Scouts and cookies share a rich history. While recipes and box designs have changed, selling cookies remain an important part of today's Girl Scout program.

How does the Girl Scout Cookie Sale Activity benefit girls?

The activity of selling cookies is directly related to our purpose of helping all girls realize their full potential and become strong, confident and resourceful citizens. Through the Cookie Sale Activity, girls will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn the importance of goal-setting and develop plans to achieve a goal.
  • Understand how their efforts contribute to the overall good of their council and Girl Scouting.
  • Put the ethical standards of the Girl Scout Promise and Law into practice.
  • Learn about entrepreneurship and basic business and financial planning.
  • Develop high levels of self-esteem, self-reliance and personal achievement.
  • Heighten their career awareness.
  • Develop interpersonal and teamwork skills.

Customers get a great product and get to support girls in their own community. And all of the proceeds support the Girl Scout Program in the local community.

Learning Life Skills

Many successful business women today say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies. Girls practice useful life skills like planning, decision-making and customer service. During cookie activities, girls are members of a team working towards a common goal, with each girl striving to do her best.

The Cookie Sale Activity gives girls the opportunity to develop a variety of life skills, such as:

  • Communication skills
  • Financial skills
  • Entrepreneurial skills
  • Goal-setting and planning
  • Teamwork
  • Honesty and integrity
  • Responsibility
  • Self-reliance
  • Contributing to the good of others

Every local troop/group is encouraged to set realistic goals, such as planning field trips and community service projects, to accomplish during the year. The money earned from cookie activities helps the troop/group achieve its goals.

So when your local Girl Scouts come calling with this year's best-selling cookies, remember you're saying hello to tomorrow's business leaders.

Please remember to attend any local trainings for further information.
