Girl Scouts & Entrepreneurship
The Girl Scout Cookie Program is an important (and exciting!) part of the overall Girl Scout experience. As part of the world's largest girl-led business, Girl Scouts get a taste of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur—like teamwork, planning, and money management—while developing the confidence they need to shine as girls, young women, and future leaders, no matter what path they take.
Whether girls go door to door, set up booths at libraries and shopping centers, or sell cookies online with Digital Cookie®, the Cookie Program teaches them skills that are essential to leadership, to success, and to life. And cookie entrepreneurs don’t just improve their own lives—they have the vision to change the world. Every year, Girl Scouts use their cookie earnings to do amazing things in their communities and beyond, from helping animal shelters to raising awareness about bullying, and tons more.
