About Girl Scout Cookies

2022 was a Girl Scout Cookie season full of new opportunities and excitement but it was not without challenges to which our members and families had to adapt. Girl Scouts reached more customers and sold more cookies, per Girl Scout, on average, than they have in 20 years!

The Girl Scout Cookie Program powers life-changing programs, experiences and learning for Girl Scouts across our council and provides a hands-on way for girls to learn leadership and money management.

Congratulations to all our cookie entrepreneurs, who worked hard to achieve their goals this year – and thank you to all our volunteers, customers and community members who helped make this program a success – we couldn’t do it without you!

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:

numbers

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

number3_32

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.
 

number5_32

Business Ethics: Be honest and responsible at every step of the cookie sale. Her business ethics reinforce the positive values she is developing as a Girl Scout.
