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!
