For Cookie Sellers

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than just helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You're doing it with a goal in mind. Whether that goal is going to summer camp, a community project, or your first overnight trip with your troop, you know how many packages you need to sell to make it happen.

But did you know that you're also part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world? Even cooler: being a Girl Scout Cookie Professional gives you skills essential for success both now and later!

Cookie Entrepreneur Family Pins

Guidelines for each program level are on the Volunteer Toolkit in the resources tab and linked below.
