Why Participate?

There’s no program like it.

The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-run business in the country. Much more than a fundraiser, it’s a unique, hands-on way for girls to develop five essential skills that are core to the Girl Scout Leadership Program:

  • Goal-setting
  • Decision-making
  • Money management
  • People skills
  • Business ethics


Why does it matter?

These skills will impact her personal and professional life in countless ways. Through the Girl Scout Cookie Program, she will be someone who:
  • Sets goals and meets deadlines
    She knows what it takes and she can achieve anything she puts her mind to.
  • Works well with others to arrive at decisions
    Who wants drama and indecision on the work team? Not the boss!
  • Manages personal money and business finances
    For her, there is no mystery in the math.
  • Understands customers and can influence others
    She knows what makes people tick and how to win them over – for business or for social causes.
  • Is known to be reliable
    Everyone knows her to be honest and trustworthy. They can count on her!
