You may know that your Troop earns proceeds from Cookies and girls earn patches and rewards, but did you also know the Girl Scout Cookie Program teaches girls essential skills that will last a lifetime….and it’s fun? Every year, Girl Scouts of Nassau County (GSNC) asks our girls and families for their feedback about the Girl Scout Cookie Program.
What you told us you liked most* about selling Cookies was:
1. It’s fun
2. People love buying Girl Scout Cookies
3. The excitement of striving to reach sales goals
4. Earning rewards and patches
When the Girl Scout Research Institute measured the impact of the Girl Scout Cookie Program, they found that a majority of Girl Scout “Cookie Entrepreneurs” are developing the five essential skills of goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics. Learning valuable life skills via the Girl Scout Cookie Program helps girls become successful community and business leaders, now and in the future.
*Not surprisingly, what our girls like least about selling Girl Scout Cookies was the cold and snowy weather!
