Look for Girl Scout Cookies, beginning February 5, 2016.
Through their participation in the Cookie Program, girls learn 5 key skills that give them the tools to reach higher and overcome any challenge.
Why the 5 Skills Matter:
Girls set Girl Scout Cookie sales goals and create a plan to reach them. This matters because girls need to know how to set and reach goals to succeed in school, on the job and in life.
Girls decide where and when to sell cookies, how to market their sale and what to do with their earnings. This matters because girls will make many decisions, big and small, throughout their lives and learning this skill helps them make good ones.
Girls develop a budget, take cookie orders and handle customers’ money. This matters because girls need to know how to handle money—from their lunch money to their allowance to (someday) their paycheck.
Girls learn how to talk (and listen!) to their customers, as well as learning how to work as a team with other girls. This matters because it helps them do better in school (on group projects, on sports teams and on the playground) and, in the future, at work.
Girls act honestly and responsibly throughout every step of their Cookie Program. This matters because employers want to hire ethical employees—and the world needs ethical leaders in every field.
