About Girl Scout Cookies
Think Outside the Cookie Box
The Girl Scout Cookie Program provides all Girl Scouts with opportunities to earn their own money and make their own choices!
All Girl Scouts are encouraged to earn their girl scout funds instead of having a check written. Why? Imagine a Kindergartener who knows she earned the funds to go on an amazing field trip—lmagine an 11th grader traveling to Switzerland on the money she’s earned. Entrepreneurship creates life-changing experiences for Girl Scouts and builds financial literacy in a way no other program can.
Dream it, earn it, do it. That's the Girl Scout difference.
Will she help the local animal shelter across town or plant a community garden for friends and neighbors? Cross the country to see the Grand Canyon, or cross an ocean for the travel experience of a lifetime? Go to summer camp, or earn one of Girl Scouting’s highest awards? It’s up to her and her troop—they own their adventure!
That’s the thing. When girls participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they get more than life-changing experiences and adventure. They also develop essential life skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all while soaring in confidence and practicing leadership the Girl Scout way to lift one another up and change the world, together.
What an experience! That’s why we always focus on the interaction between cookie boss and cookie fan, and not cookie parent and cookie fan—this is SO important! Enjoy your favorite cookies even more knowing you helped her do and learn amazing things.
