Cookies Power Amazing Adventures for Girls

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you’re powering amazing, year-round experiences for every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) extraordinaire in your community who sells them—that’s right, proceeds stay local and are reinvested in girls!

Big picture: as a cookie customer, you’re actually helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful—teamwork, planning, and a positive outlook. Beyond that, you’re actually narrowing the gender gap in entrepreneurship by nurturing girls’ skills early and often. How awesome is that?

Whether it’s a trip to a breathtaking place she’s never been, a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) project that will change the way she thinks about the world, or an opportunity to attend Girl Scout camp and revel in the power of the great outdoors, at Girl Scouts every experience helps her unleash her  G.I.R.L. spirit to do amazing things for herself and her community and grow into the incredible woman she’s destined to become.

But wait, there’s more! By selling cookies, girls develop five essential skills—goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills, and business ethics—all of which help them succeed today and in the future. They grow their confidence and practice leadership, too.

What an experience! That’s why the Girl Scout Cookie Program focuses on her—because it’s about so much more than delicious treats. It’s about supporting girls’ success through the biggest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world—SWEET!

When you buy a box of delicious Girl Scout Cookies, you help power new, unique, and amazing experiences for the awesome girls in your community who sell these purpose-filled treats—SWEET!

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 to fly through the rainforest on a zip line? 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.
