Girl Scout Cookie Program

What Can A Cookie Buy?
The Experience of a Lifetime!
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is much more than a fundraiser, it is the largest girl-led business in the country and generates immeasurable benefits for girls, their local Girl Scout offices and communities nationwide. It is the vehicle that drives the creation of great women. It begins as a way for girls to earn money for their troops by setting personal and group goals, but it becomes the basis for her to realize that SHE CAN make a difference. This hands-on financial literacy program provides girls with a means to enhance their public speaking skills, work in collaborative groups, set goals and map out a plan to achieve them. They also have a chance to connect with their community, build self confidence and most importantly fuel their imaginations - all while having FUN! When all of the key components of the program come together girls become the women of tomorrow - strong and confident, committed and make the world a better place.
