Girl Scout Cookie Program - For Volunteers

For Cookie Volunteers

Cookie Program at a Glance | Important Dates | Troop Proceeds | Troop Rewards | Daisies Can Cookie | Cookie Support Check-Ins

As a Girl Scout Cookie Program volunteer, you have the awesome opportunity to introduce girls to new experiences and help them unleash their inner G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader) ™ to take the lead and change the world.

You will help girls discover their inner-entrepreneur, connect them and their parents to resources that make participating in the Girl Scouts Cookie Program FUN and easy, while taking action to ensure that all girls in the troop learn how to set goals to “stretch” themselves and think outside of the cookie box!

Cookie Support Check-Ins

This year GSGATL wants to make sure we provide you with an opportunity to get all of the support you need. Feel free to join us for one of these completely optional pre-scheduled check-ins. Each 30 minute session will allow GSGATL to share tips and specific tasks for what should be happening at that point in the season, as well as provide time for a Q&A session for you. Join us as often as you like – we’re here for you!
