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!
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.
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.
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.
