For Cookie Sellers

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind—a goal to power new, unique, and amazing experiences for yourself and your troop all year long!

Whether that goal is an unforgettable trip to an exciting new place, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) project that will change the way you look at the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and make a lifetime of memories, you know how many boxes you need to sell to make it happen. 

But did you know that you're also part of something even bigger—something thousands of awesome girls nationwide who are just like you are part of too? That’s right. When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—and that’s kind of a huge deal! Having the opportunity to run your very own cookie business gives you skills essential for success today and in the future:

   Goal Setting

   Decision Making

   Money Management 

   People Skills

   Business Ethics 

Need some help getting started? Check out all the amazing resources that make it easy to sell more boxes of cookies this year than you ever thought possible!  


Girl Scouts are going to wow this cookie season with Digital Cookie®!
