For Cookie Volunteers

Thank you for supporting your troop’s cookie program participation. Because of you, girls will gain valuable skills to help them succeed. As a cookie volunteer, you are an integral part of Girl Scouting’s largest financial literacy initiative for girls ages 5-17, teaching them five skills to carry them through life. You also play a big role in making our cookie program successful. We thank you for your dedication to the girls and our mission.

Top 5 reasons to participate in the Cookie Program

1. Life Skills: The largest girl-led business in the world helps girls and adults develop leadership skills including goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

2. It’s EASY: As a Troop Cookie Manager, you can access VIP eTraining and resources to track and manage girls’ businesses.

3. Financial Benefits: Your troop will earn money to offset the cost of activities, supplies and more. In the process, girls gain skills to be financially independent.

4. Girls earn fabulous rewards: Rewards help girls set goals to reach high levels of achievement. Cookie Dough helps pay for Girl Scout Summer Camp, troop trips, programs, Girl Scout membership registration and more.

5. Your girls will THANK YOU: Many successful business women got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies.
