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.

You even get to bring meaningful moments of joy to all your customers with every box of delicious treats you sell! How special is that? Very—especially in challenging times like these.
