The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the largest girl-led business and one of the most respected financial literacy programs in the world. Girls who participate in the Cookie Program get hands-on entrepreneurial experience and learn five key skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics. When you purchase a box of Girl Scout cookies, you are supporting local girls as they reach their goals and learn essential skills that they’ll carry with them throughout their lives.
After paying our cookie baker, every penny earned during the Cookie Program stays local: a portion stays with our Council to provide services to our girls, and the rest to the troop selling the cookies.
