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:
