Five Skills

The Girl Scout Cookie program is a fun way for girls to earn money to support their dreams, and it's a hands-on leadership and financial literacy program unlike any other in the world. The knowledge and skills learned serves them for a lifetime. Girls gain essential skills, not from a book, but from real-life experiences building a strong foundation for success.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches Girl Scouts skills to grow into leaders in their own life, in business and in the world:

Decision Making: Helps decide how her team spends their cookie money, furthering critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Money Management: Takes cookie orders, handles customers’ money, and gains valuable and practical life skills around financial literacy.
 

number4_32

People Skills: Learns how to talk to, listen to and work with all kinds of people while selling cookies. These experiences help her develop healthy relationships and conflict resolution skills that she can use throughout her life.

Think Outside the Cookie Box

When you buy Girl Scout Cookies, you feed joy and make a difference with every box.

Will your Girl Scout Cookie entrepreneur help the local hospital or animal shelter across town? Climb her first mountain? Start a nonprofit? It’s up to her and her troop. Proceeds stay local to power life-changing programs, experiences, and learning all year long!

When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they also develop important life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—that will set girls up for success beyond anything they can imagine.

That’s why we ask you to buy the delicious cookies you crave from your local Girl Scout Cookie business pro—not from her parents. You’ll enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do all the amazing things she’s got planned for this year while also learning a ton along the way.
