For Cookie Sellers

There's so much more to Girl Scout Cookies than what’s in the box—there’s the magic that is you!

When you sell Girl Scout Cookies, you're doing more than helping your customers stock up on delicious treats (and having lots of fun). You have a goal in mind: to power life-changing programs, experiences, and learning for yourself and your troop all year long. Because no matter what obstacles may come your way, we know that you’ll face them with resiliency and creativity—it’s the Girl Scout way!

When you participate in the Girl Scout Cookie Program, you’re part of something even bigger than you, your troop, and all the amazing girls nationwide that sell too; you’re part of the largest girl-led entrepreneurial program in the world! Having the opportunity to run your very own cookie business gives you skills essential for success today and in the future.

Juliettes/Individual Participants

Any Girl Scout can participate in the Cookie Program, regardless of if she belongs to a troop. However, there are some slight differences between participating with a troop and as an individual. 

How to Participate as a Juliette or Individual Member

Step 1: Complete your Juliette Caregiver Product Program Agreement Form

  • After completing the agreement, the Juliette Girl Scout will be able to sell via Digital Cookie ONLY. If the GIrl Scout would like to sell in-person with an order card or at a cookie booth, the caregiver will need to reach out Member Care (MemberCare@cbgsc.org) to request access to the required training.
  • Each Girl Scout Juliette or Individual Member must have an adult volunteer supervise her participation in the Cookie Program. This volunteer could be a parent/caregiver, a Service Unit Juliette Champion, another Troop Cookie Champion, or another volunteer within the Service Unit. The adult must be a registered Girl Scout volunteer and be able to fufill the responsibilities of a Troop Cookie Champion. If the volunteer is not a parent/caregiver, the caregiver still must complete the Juliette Caregiver Product Program Agreement Form

Step 2: Decide how you would your program to be managed. There are 3 options.

  1. Sell individually - The Girl Scout's cookie order and rewards will be sent to the Service Unit Cookie Champion. The cookie proceeds are deposited into the GSCB bank account.*
  2. Sell with a troop - The troop can be any level. The Girl Scout's rewards and proceeds are managed by the troop. The troop must include the Juliette/individual in program or event opportunities in which the cookie proceeds are used.
  3. Sell with a group of Juliettes within the Service Unit - The cookie proceeds are deposited into the GSCB bank account.*

* Juliettes/individuals are not legally allowed to keep proceeds for their sales. GSCB retains custody of any funds they have available for the remainder of her Girl Scout participation. The Girl Scout may request to use her funds for Girl Scout-related activities such as summer camp registration, council or SU events, etc. at any point.

If you are interested in participating as an individual member or Juliette, please reach out to Member Care at any time before or during the Cookie Program.
