Every year, both Girl Scouts and the public eagerly look forward to cookie season. Girls begin by setting goals and then taking orders from friends, family, neighbors and others for delicious Girl Scout Cookies. By participating in the Cookie Program, girls gain valuable experiences, earn rewards and earn proceeds for their troop to fund their activities and projects.
Being involved in the Cookie Program ensures girls are learning to become leaders. A girl becomes a leader by discovering, connecting and taking action to make the world a better place. For girls to become leaders, they need to:
- Understand their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore their world (Discover)
- Care about, inspire and team with others locally (Connect)
- Act to make the world a better place and to make a difference in their communities (Take Action)
Funds generated from this program also offset the cost of girl programs, volunteer trainings and even camp reservations, keeping them low for all of our membership.
