Girl Scout Cookie Program

 

We all know the Girl Scout Cookie Program, the biggest girl-led business in the world, is about so much more than exchanging a box of tasty treats for money. When a Girl Scout sells you a package of cookies, she’s doing much more. She’s creating a plan, interacting with customers and working as part of a team. And, she’s also building a lifetime of skills and confidence linked to leadership and financial literacy.

What can a cookie buy? The experience of a lifetime. 

Give your Girl Scout all the benefits of this unique leadership program.  Much more than a way to raise money, the Girl Scout Cookie Program is a hands-on leadership and entrepreneurial program unlike any other in the world.  Girls gain a wealth of essential skills, not from a book, but from real life experiences that build a strong foundation for success.  Many successful businesswomen and community leaders say they got their start selling Girl Scout Cookies.

 
 
Learning Life Skills

Through Girl Scouting, girls become leaders in their daily lives and prepare for their bright futures! The Girl Scout Cookie Program provides an important ingredient for leadership by helping girls develop five key skills: Goal Setting, Decision Making, Money Management, People Skills and Business Ethics.

 

Along the way, girls deepen relationships and create memories that will last a lifetime. She won’t want to miss the fun. And, you won’t want her to miss the learning! There’s no substitute for giving your Girl Scout the exciting, enriching experience of the Girl Scout Cookie Program.

 
 
Gift of Caring

For various reasons, some customers do not want to buy cookies for themselves, or they have only a limited need.  With Gift of Caring, they have a chance to give to others while supporting Girl Scouting at the same time.  Girl Scouts of Southern Illinois has partnered with local American Red Cross chapters for our council wide Gift of Caring program.  Through this partnership, cookies purchased through the Gift of Caring program will be used to aid in family disasters.
