The ultimate goal of cookie season is to help fund troop activities and to teach Girl Scouts about the importance of financial literacy.
Through the sale of signature cookies, Girl Scouts of all ages learn important life skills, such as goal setting, money management and business ethics, all while having fun.
“When local consumers purchase Girl Scout cookies they’re helping the next generation of female entrepreneurs get an important taste of what it takes to be successful – teamwork, strategizing, and positive outlook, said Linda Bridges, Chief of Communications for GSSNV. “As the largest entrepreneurial program for girls in the world, the Girl Scout Cookie Program empowers young women to understand the path to financial independence.”
