There's more to Girl Scout
cookies than what's in the box.

Selling cookies teaches goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—aspects essential to leadership, to success, and to life.

Goal Setting

Mission: Totally possible!

We're all about new things and having fun. Selling cookies is about both. My friends and I work together to set our team goal for the season; maybe we'll donate to our local animal hospital or go on an adventure. Sure, selling the cookies is great. But what we do with the money we earn is even greater.

Decision Making

I make smarter decisions.

When I sell cookies with my Girl Scout sisters, we make our own decisions, like how many boxes we want to sell. We all have to agree on what we'll do with the money, which means talking it out and being okay with sometimes not getting our way. And we have to figure out how to solve problems, like what to do when one of the girls is sick and can't help out. Our decisions matter.

Money Management

I make change happen.

It's cool that I get to make change when someone buys cookies. I'm really careful about it. I count it out twice, so I know it's totally right. And I know each box sold gets us one step closer to our goal.

People Skills

Every box is packed with a lifetime supply of confidence.

I've met so many new people at our cookie booth. And I've gotten really good at chatting with them about how we are doing more than just selling Girl Scout Cookies. We are earning money to achieve our cookie-season goals.

Business Ethics

Selling cookies is more than just business.

The other day at the cookie booth, I made my friend's mom laugh really hard and she totally forgot her change. I made sure she got it back. She was so impressed, she bought another box of cookies. Now I'm even closer to going to robotics camp.
