Don’t forget COCO Cookie Command Center
COCO Cookie Command Center is an online “business center” for girls,
volunteers and families! It’s like a virtual office for the cookie
program troops can make their own. COCO is part of ABC Smart Cookies
. They have everything troops need from training to goal setting to sales support resources.
Set and track sales goals
Encourage troop members with fun “cheers”
Track their recognitions
Create a personal sales plan based on the 5 Key Skills
Reach out to customers with eCards and other resources
Troop Volunteers can:
Track each girl’s individual performance
Message girls/parents to remind them of important dates and activities
Access troop reports to review sales and progress
Girls can work on this important life skill by logging into COCO
and completing the goal setting activities.
Every girl who completes the fun, interactive goal setting activity can
receive a special “Goal Getter” patch. To receive the patch, girls need
to complete the activity and post a message in COCO that it is complete.
Leaders and TCMs can review girls’ goals on the troop’s COCO page. For
every girl who completes the activity, troops will order a “Goal Getter”
patch as part of their recognition order in Snap.
