The Girl Scout Cookie Program is the ultimate girl-led business
venture. It is so much more than selling cookies! Girls learn 5 skills
that will last a lifetime: goal setting, decision-making, money
management, people skills, and business ethics.
To help girls learn these skills, Girl Scouts Nation’s Capital is
offering a variety of ways to get your cookie on! Read the options
below and choose the best one for your troop.
Cookie Town Hall – November 9 7:00pm
Parents and leaders, join us for a webinar to learn about all the
different options for cookie programming. Our staff will go over each
program to help you decide which is best for your girls. We will talk
about best practices for implementing and answer questions at the end.
Registration is required.
Cookie University To-Go
Cookie University To-Go is a program designed for Associations and
Service Units to host their own Cookie University for Daisies,
Brownies, and Juniors. Hosting an event in your community reaches more
girls and sets them up for a successful cookie season. The leader
guides walk you through planning, set up, clean up, and how to conduct
each class. Cookie University events are a great opportunity for older
girls to earn service hours by planning and hosting. The leader guide
is free but must be ordered. Patches are available for purchase
through the same site, NOT in the Shop. This program is only available
until February 28, 2021.
Cookie Entrepreneur Patch Program
The Cookie Entrepreneur Patch Program is designed for all Girl
Scouts to learn the five business and leadership skills (goal setting,
decision making, people skills, money management, and business ethics)
that are part of the Girl Scout Cookie Program. Girls can complete at
their own pace at home, or the troop can do together during meetings.
This is the perfect way to get ready for the Cookie Program if you
have a very busy schedule. This is a seasonal program and will not be
available year-round like our other patch programs. Patches are
available in the Shop until February 28, 2021.
Virtual Option – A slide deck is available
for those wishing to host this program virtually with their troop.
Registration has closed for the Virtual Event hosted by SheEO
Academy, one of our Program Partners. If you would like to host your
own event, click
here for the workshops. The program is
designed for Brownies to Ambassadors and includes 4 workshops where
girls learn how to brand their business, what it takes to design a new
cookie, how to become an entrepreneur, and how cookies move from
factory to buyer.
Cookie Entrepreneur Family Pins
Her Cookie Business = A Family Affair
The year-by-year Cookie Entrepreneur Family pin collection was
inspired by and designed for families just like yours! It’s never been
easier to support your girl as she develops business skills, makes
amazing memories, and earns a different pin for her uniform every
cookie season. The simple, age-specific guidelines have been tailored
for her developing skill set, making success a snap. Pins can be
purchased in the Girl Scout Shop.
