In addition to giving girls an opportunity to earn money to fund
their Girl Scouting goals, taking part in the Girl Scout Cookie
Program teaches girls five important skills that serve them throughout
their lives: goal setting, money management, people skills, decision
making, and business ethics.
With every season of cookies, another generation of girls learns
five important skills.
For examples, Cadettes can explore the food in other regions or
countries for their New Cuisines badge, Seniors can find out about
international business customs as part of their Business Etiquette
badge, and Ambassadors can work on their Photography badge while
documenting their trip.
Troop business may include taking attendance, collecting dues,
making announcements, and planning an upcoming event or trip.
